Another day, another Bryce Harper bomb. The guy is on fire.
In the bottom of the first inning in Washington, Harper belted a Matt Harvey meatball over the right field fence to the give Nationals a two-run lead against the New York Mets.

That gives Harper six homers on the year in just his ninth game. That's more than a bunch of teams have at this point in the season!
Bryce Harper just hit his 6th home run of the season. That's more than the Royals, Tigers, Marlins, Rays and Dodgers. He's tied with the Mets and Reds— SB Nation MLB (@SBNationMLB) April 9, 2018
Harper has absolutely owned the Mets the last few seasons, and he continues to haunt Matt Harvey. Harvey held Bryce hitless in his first 20 at-bats against him, but since then, Harper has had his way with the Dark Knight.
That home run also puts Bryce in some elite territory. He now has the highest OPS in April in the history of baseball with a 1.097.
And he's still so young.
