Bryce Harper hit only one home run on Saturday, but it was a walk-off
Don't look now, but Bryce Harper is on pace for 57 home runs.
The kid is on fire. First, he homered three times on Wednesday and joked that he didn't want to take a curtain call because he wasn't done. Then, he homered twice in his next game. How do you follow up five home runs and two curtain calls in two games? Well, with a walk-off home run of course.
Harper was already 1-for-3 with a walk and a spectacular catch when he came up to the plate in the bottom of the ninth of a 6-6 game. That's when this happened:
That's six taters in three games. He may never go a game without a home run ever again. If that GIF simply isn't enough Bryce Harper for you (and how could it be?), we implore you to check out our vital #BryceHarperFacts that you should commit to memory before he hits four more home runs tomorrow.
Of course, Harper wasn't the only person wearing No. 34 to score a game-winner against a team from Atlanta on Saturday. Paul Pierce of the Washington Wizards sunk the Atlanta Hawks with a buzzer beater in Game 3 to give the Wizards a 2-1 series lead.
