Could this be the symbolic end of Bryce Harper's slump? We're gonna go with a hard no, but it's at least a start. The Nats star is in a free agency year, and while he's still shown off his usual power, Harper's come up unusually empty of late. Hell, this was his first home run since early June.

Despite his power outage, Harper still leads the National League and home runs, and isn't far behind in most run-producing categories. Still, we have high expectations for the former NL MVP, and his current .220 batting average leaves a lot to be desired.
A Bryce Bomb is nice to see, but he has a long way to go.
