Bryce Harper hits outrageous broken-bat HR

Strong Baseball Man Bryce Harper Hit a Broken-Bat Home Run Off Jacob deGrom

DeGrom's pitch arrived at 95 miles per hour and left Harper's broken bat at a little over 99 miles per hour. According to MLB's website, the swing propelled the ball 406 feet, with an exit velocity of 99 miles per hour.

While Harper getting his MLB-leading eighth homer in just 17 games is certainly impressive, the fact that he hit a long ball with a broken field at Citi Field is much more important.

Harper connected for a solo drive in the first inning off Jacob deGrom. The late comeback by the Washington Nationals?

That home run, by the way, was No. 8 on the season for Harper. "You're going to have ups and downs in this game, and you've got to be able to handle them". He also drove in a run with a safety squeeze.

In Pittsburgh, Trevor Story drilled a three-run homer, German Marquez pitched six effective innings and Colorado kept its road surge going. Jose Peraza had a two-run double.

The barrel of Harper's bat went flying into the screen near the Mets' dugout.

Midway through, the Mets lead the Nats 2-1. He has allowed five hits but only two runs.

Rangers shortstop Jurickson Profar left Monday night's game against the Rays with an apparent injury. Authorities said no injuries were reported, but several windows in nearby office buildings were smashed and at least one vehicle was struck.
