VIDEO: Bryce Harper crushes first home run of 2014

Apr 9, 2014, 11:24 PM EST

Bryce Harper entered Wednesday’s game against the Marlins in a 4-for-25 (.160) season-opening slump, but he snapped out of it in loud fashion with this towering fourth-inning blast …

Harper also singled in the sixth inning as part of a 2-for-4 night. The Nationals rallied from an early 5-0 deficit to beat the visiting Marlins 10-7, helped by an eighth-inning Jayson Werth grand slam.

    Boom. I think it went even farther on the replay!

    He was lost, but now fondue; was blind, but now rantoul. That was quite a shot. The Feesh are reverting to type.

      One loss isn’t the season, man. Hang in there. I think the Nats got lucky to come back in this one. It happens.

        They didn’t get lucky. They got Carlos Marmol. How long did anybody really think it was going to take before the real Carlos Marmol stood up?

        Marmol? Your Boys were Marmolled? Dang man. That sucks. A Marmolling really stings. Put some Bactine on it.

      I’m not sure how big a step up Rantoul is from being blind. Unless you meant he “aimed high” with that shot.

    Wow… crushes is an understatement

    Mongo hit ball. Mongo hit ball far.

    Did they have an estimation of how far it went?
