Bryce Harper Throws Bat After Homer Because He Thought It Was a Pop Fly (Video)
When you’re as hot as Bryce Harper is right now, even your routine pop-outs somehow turn into home runs.
That’s exactly what happened to the Washington Nationals outfielder during Tuesday night’s game against the Cubbies at Wrigley, as he tossed his bat in disgust when he thought he had surrendered the first out of the seventh inning, only to watch his fly-ball carry over the left-field fence:
With that, Harper now has 12 home runs and 27 RBIs in the month of May. But it wasn’t enough on this night, as the Cubs prevailed, 3-2, thanks to Addison Russell‘s walk-off RBI double in the ninth.
