The Washington Nationals became the first NL team in over 10 years to sweep the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park on Sunday. They shocked the Sox with a late 4-3 victory, thanks in part to the rising legend that is Bryce Harper.
Harper took a five pitch walk from the foolish Alfredo Aceves in the ninth-inning of a 3-3 game and that pretty much sealed the deal. Roger “The Shark” Bernadina came to the plate and smoked a right field single. Now, most players would take off from first and probably end up at third at most on a single like that– of course, Bryce Harper is not like most players. The young phenom took off from first with nothing but scoring completely on his mind. He rounded third at full speed and slid across the plate easily beating the throw and pumping his fist. Game over, point to the Game Changer. Harper wasn’t even in the line up for the first time since being called up to rest a sore back. He enters the game and changes everything.
Ha, you remember all that “Bryce Harper is an immature kid, douchebag who will get eaten alive in the Majors” crap?
Yeah, me too.
