Harper's big night

← return to Nationals Watch

Bryce Harper’s slow start may officially be behind him.

The 18-year-old outfielder went 3-for-3 on Friday night with a double, a home run, six RBI and two walks in a 17-1 Hagerstown rout.

The home run was his second in as many games and third of the season and Harper, who was batting .226 at the time of his home debut in Hagerstown a week ago, is now hitting .306 on the season.

He’s 6-for-10 in the last three games the Suns have played and now has a team-leading 14 RBI in just 15 games.
