On Sunday, Bryce Harper once again reminded us why he’s so feared, answering an “underrated” taunt with his second home run of the game. Then on Monday, he wasted no time reminding us again, absolutely destroying a pitch off the hand of Sean Newcomb for a three-run bomb.

Here’s a look at this moon shot, which put Washington up 5-0 early over the Atlanta Braves.


Harper is red hot since hitting his first homer on Sunday, too.

Safe to say, he’s highly motivated to make this, a contract year for him, extra special.
