Bryce Harper hits broken bat home run

Harper hits broken-bat HR Nats top Mets

He got Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper to break his bat.

Facing New York Mets hard-throwing right-hander Jacob deGrom, Harper smoked a 96-mph fastball to right-center field for a solo home run.

Coming into Monday night, the Washington outfielder and former MVP was batting an even.300 with seven homers, 14 RBI and and OPS of 1.219. Harper hit his major league-leading eighth home run, a solo shot in the first inning on a 95 miles per hour fastball from Jacob deGrom.
