A Reds fan yelled 'overrated' right before Bryce Harper demolished his second HR of the game
In the sixth inning of the Nationals' 6-5 win over the Reds on Sunday, Bryce Harper hit his first home run of the year. It was, of course, a moonshot -- traveling halfway up the bleachers in right field:
But Bryce wasn't satisfied with just one dinger. He was thirsty for more. And in the ninth inning, he came up to try and add some insurance runs to his team's 5-3 lead. Reds fans were restless and, let's face it, probably angry to see No. 34 up at the plate again. They didn't want any more Bryce moonshots. One fan tried his best to get in Harper's head right before the pitch came -- to distract him from doing his job. That did not work.

In all honesty, the taunting probably fires Harper up even more. And as MLB.com's Jamal Collier notes, a fastball located here doesn't exactly help:
Let me go take a look at the location on that last Bryce Harper home run and...oh. Um, I would advise against throwing it there next time pic.twitter.com/14YxIryfZT- Jamal Collier (@JamalCollier) April 1, 2018
