WASHINGTON – Bryce Harper did not allow a bit of rain – or many battles – to spoil his return home.
Harper, a former Washington-born star who returned to DC on Tuesday evening, a member of Philadelphia Phyllis, had to wait longer than expected to see how the crowd in the National Park would react.

After a 41
After a long pause, which lasted more than a minute, Harper switched to Sherzera. With two runners, and nobody is at the top of the first inning, Phillies slugger struck a 2-2 changeup. During his second attack at the top of the third, Harper once again loudly distorted the standing of the crowd. With two outlets and bases empty, and Phillis, who leads 1: 0, Harper knocked out for the second time, swinging on a 3-2 boat from Sherzera.
But from that moment Harper has ensured that he will receive the latest laugh. . In the upper part, among others, the chorus boos, Harper finally got to Sherzera, lining the double to the right. When he arrived at the second base, Harper smiled and waved exaggeratedly to his fellow team Phillies in the third base. Harper then delivered the RBI single to leave at the top of the sixth of Matt Leicester's Matt Grace, increasing Philly's drive to 6-0. After playing the playful fan Phillies in the right field began to repeatedly chant "MVP", followed by a refrain: "We have Harper."
And in his final and final beating, in front of Jeremy Helixson in the eighth inning, Harper launched a mammoth, two camps in the second deck in the right center of the field, his third bomb season. He showed a monster bombing flip in the direction of the national dugout.
"I feel that it comes a bit differently here and grumbling," Harper said after Philly's 8-2 victory. "But for me it's the same as going to another football hall and facing someone who turns off, electric, like Max, or go to New York and be lit. This is the same for me. My game and it's clear, that there are teammates in this earthworm who are going to pull it out for me every day.
"I have the city of Philadelphia for me every night.
Bryce Harper thinks about his first game in Washington after signing with Phillis in the offseason.
458-foot Jack, Harper now has two of the three longest running runners of the young season, according to ESPN Stats & Information research. On the night he went 3-by-5 with three RBIs, helping Philadelphia improve to 4: 0 for the first time since 1915
"It was nice to compete with him," Scherzer said of Harper. – The crowd was really in it, the more so what I thought it would be. I just fed up with the crowd atmosphere. He is a great striker and you have to make big pitches to bring him out. You saw it today. I was able to get it a couple of times. But you make a step above the middle of the plate, he was able to get the bit to it and hit the double. It will be fun to continue to compete with him. "
In a strange turn of the fate, as a result of bad weather, Harper's car as a visitor to the National Park began exactly the same as the term of his residence as a resident. During his last speech in Washington, September 26, 2018, Harper stood in a deck when the rain stopped playing after the seventh-minute finale.
According to the Washington Post, published on Monday, during the September rain, Harper received an envelope with a $ 10-year offer from citizens for $ 300 million. In the past two months, on March 2, the former MVP signed a Phillies contract for 13 year contract for $ 330 million. Exactly a month later, the 26-year-old outfielder first came back to the capital of the country as a visitor.
Harper's face was met with the beads during the announcement of the start-up warehouses, and the suppression continued during the next tribute video that played on the t he giant board in the right center of the field. The installation lasted just over a minute and showed Harper's clips, receiving his MVP award by dedicating to the local baseball field named after him, and winning the last summer's Home Run Derby in DC, completing the message: "
" Bryce obviously polarizes figure ", – said the first man from the pool Ryan Zimmerman." I do not mean that it's bad at all. It's the way he was, he loves him or not, since he was 12 years old or anything. It's just kind of like it was for him all his life t I always said that I think that he is well engaged in this task, because he is used to it. That's exactly what it was for him all his car. "
