Nationals Go Back-to-Back TWICE in One Inning, Including Another Bryce Harper Grand Slam

Baseball Is Fun

Remember how many wins the Nationals were supposed to have last season? Yeah, they saved them all for 2016.

With the second best record in baseball (just a half game behind my beloved Cubs), the Washington Nationals (10-3) are firing on all cylinders behind Bryce Harper – who may soon challenge Mike Trout as the best player in baseball, if he isn’t already.

Already this season, Harper has crushed seven home runs (including one that found a bathroom), after he (and three other Nationals) added long ball in the same inning on Tuesday night.

Check it out:

Not only did the Nationals hit four home runs in the top of the 7th of a tied ball game, they went back-to-back TWICE – one of which was a grand slam from Harper, because why not? In order, the homers went Jason Werth (2nd of the season)*, Wilson Ramos (2), Bryce Harper (7)** and Ryan Zimmerman (1).

The Nationals are going to be tough this year.


*The first home run was Werth’s 2nd on the season, but also number 200 for his career (not a bad milestone to cross).

**Harper’s home run was his second grand slam of 2016, already.
