Bryce Harper Hits Broken Bat Home Run In Citi Field

Bryce Harper Hits Broken Bat Home Run In Citi Field

The Mets tied the game in the bottom of the first on a double by Michael Conforto which was followed by a RBI single from Todd Frazier.

Bryce Harper smacked a home run Monday despite breaking his bat in half in the process. Unfortunately for deGrom, it didn't matter.

While the ball still flew an estimated 406 feet, the top of his bat crashed into the protective netting and Harper was left to run just holding his handle.

To make the home run even crazier, according to Statcast it was longer than his season average to this point. He's on another level right now and clearly, it's getting noticed. The solo shot was his eighth of the season and came on the first pitch from Mets starter Jacob deGrom.

Aaron Judge became the fastest major leaguer to hit 60 career homers, and Gregorius finished with three RBIs.

Starting pitcher Jeremy Hellickson gave up two runs in 4 2/3 innings of his Nationals debut. OF Jay Bruce (plantar fasciitis) didn't start for the second straight game. The late comeback by the Washington Nationals?

Braves 2, Phillies 1 • Julio Teheran outpitched Aaron Nola, leading host Atlanta to a victory that snapped Philadelphia's winning streak at six games. That followed a weekend of freezing rain. The game is to be made up as part of a doubleheader Tuesday. The final one was rescheduled as part of a doubleheader September 28.
