ATLANTA (AP) - Bryce Harper is making a habit of hitting home runs on opening day.

The reigning NL Most Valuable Player homered in his first at-bat of the season, connecting for the Washington Nationals on Monday in the first inning at Atlanta.

The 23-year-old Harper already has four career homers on opening day. He homered twice in the 2013 opener and also homered last year.

Harper hit a solo drive into the right-field seats off Julio Teheran. Braves fans booed Harper in pregame introductions and again before he hit.
