It had been too long since a Bryce Harper home run


It’s been a rough past 45 days for Bryce Harper. But, whatever. We’re only trying to live in the present. In the Nationals 8-5 win over the Padres on Thursday night, Harper started the weekend off a little early with his 14th bomb of the season off off-brand Erik Johnson.

For a pitcher’s park, Harper doesn’t mind going yard at Petco which isn’t far from his birthplace. He likes hitting out west! It was his fourth career home run at Petco.

Harper now has 111 career home runs. Let’s hope this is the start of something big. Baseball is better when he’s hot.

It’s hard to believe the Nationals tallied three home runs and 13 total runs were scored in this game. That’s not very Petco at all.
