Brycer Harper Goes 2-3 In Double-A Debut

Bryce Harper played his first game for the Double-A Harrisburg on Monday, and he did not disappoint. Harper contributed to the Senators' offensive explosion by going 2-3 in their 8-1 victory. He also scored a run and walked. Both of his hits were singles.

Harper also raised some eyebrows (which has become sort of his thing) by going first to third on a groundout to the third baseman in the fifth inning. It was a smart baseball play, but something that is just sort of not done. According to the Nationals News Network, Harper knew that he was pressing some buttons by doing that.

"I probably should have gotten hit my next at bat," Harper only half-joked. "After thinking about it a little, I..." he paused to gather himself before continuing. "It worked out. That's all I can say."

New level of the organization, same productive - if not brash - Harper. Here are some of his highlights via CSN Washington.
