The Philadelphia Phillies are looking for their first series win in Colorado since 2012, and Bryce Harper has them off to a good start Sunday afternoon.

With two outs in the top of the first inning, Harper launched a 430-foot home run, one that left the bat at 105.6 mph:

For Harper, it was not only his fifth home run of the 2021 season, but his fifth career home run at Coors Field, widely viewed to be the most hitter-friendly park in the sport.

The month of April has been an excellent one for Harper, who is now slashing .338/.476/.631. Harper entered the day already with a 1.0 fWAR, after posting a 1.6 fWAR during the entirety of the pandemic-shortened 2020 season.
