Bryce Harper crushes walkoff, three-run bomb to topple Phillies

The dinger was Bryce Harper's second of the game.

As it turns out, this Bryce Harper fellacan hit.

On Sunday, already with one homer on the day, he launched a three-run tater off Joaquin Benoit on a two-out, full-count pitch with the Nationals trailing by one, giving Washington a 6-4 victory over Philadelphia.

The homer by Harper is his fourth of the season, and it was a no-doubter:

Harper is scorching hot to start the season, hitting .333 with a 1.099 OPS and 13 RBIs. It's still early, though — the 2015 NL MVP got off to a similar start in 2016.

He is coming off his worst season of his career, in which he hit .243 (but still slashed .373/.441/.814). He looks poised not to repeat that in 2017.
