OH NO YOU DON’T! OF THE DAY
In the first inning of tonight’s Philadelphia Phillies/Washington Nationals match-up, Phillies starter Cole Hamels beamed Nationals’ rookie Bryce Harper in his first at-bat. How did Harper handle it? BY STEALING HOME. It was Harper’s first career stolen base in the Major Leagues and, don’t forget, he only just completed his first week in the Majors. Just to drive home that the Nationals aren’t going to go for that, Nationals’ starter Jordan Zimmermann beamed Hamels in his first at-bat. Grab the popcorn, kids, and turn on ESPN. This is going to be a good one.
