Bryce Harper might be having his best game yet with the Philadelphia Phillies.
In the top of the first inning Sunday, Harper hit a 430-foot home run into the bullpen at Coors Field. After recording an outfield assist in the bottom of the second inning, Harper came to the plate and launched his second home run of the day off of Colorado Rockies starter Jon Gray, this one a 468-foot shot:
Harper now has six home runs this season, with Devan Fink of FanGraphs noting that he’s slashing .348/.482/.682 in 2021.
The 29-year-old Harper has one career three-home run game, which came on May 6, 2015, when he was playing for the Washington Nationals. Harper, of course, would go on to win the National League MVP that season.
