Bryce Harper put the Nationals on the board with his legs Sunday night against the Phillies. After getting hit by a Cole Hamels pitch in the first, he advanced to third on a Jayson Werth single and then stole home as Hamels made a pickoff throw to first.
Harper pretty easily made it into home plate ahead of Laynce Nix‘s relay on the play. It was his first career steal in his eighth game with the Nationals.
The 19-year-old Harper, baseball’s youngest player, entered the night 6-for-23 with four doubles, three RBI and five walks since his callup. He’s still looking for his first homer.
