Bryce Harper hits broken-bat home run off of Jacob deGrom

Bryce Harper hits broken-bat home run off of Jacob deGrom

Harper trotted most of the way to first holding the few inches of the handle that remained after tagging a 95 miles per hour fastball from Jacob deGrom.

In New York, Didi Gregorius homered twice for the second time this season, Gary Sanchez had three hits and three RBIs, and the Yankees routed Miami.

Bryce Harper hit his eighth home run of the season Monday when he took Jacob deGrom deep in the first inning to give the Nationals a 1-0 lead over the Mets.

"Barreled it pretty good", Harper told Associated Press.

This apparent injury is bad timing for Profar, as he just got the opportunity to start at shortstop after Elvis Andrus went down with an injury. Kurt Suzuki's sacrifice fly in the fourth inning broke a 1-1 tie. It cracked into two pieces, but the ball still flew an estimated 123.7 meters to right-center field.

Mets right fielder Brandon Nimmo headed toward the wall and quickly ran out of room. Manager Mickey Callaway says Cespedes' timing at the plate is slightly off, and felt a break might help. On his way back to the dugout, Harper playfully pulled up his sleeve to show his biceps. Entering Monday's game, the 25-year-old outfielder was also leading the majors in walks (20) and OPS (1.219), and he is already just one homer short of matching his career high through the end of April (nine in 2013, 2016 and 2017). But anything like that?
