The Nationals are right in the thick of their spring training schedule, which means they'll be playing baseball just about every single day from now until the end of September. Can you even imagine how many sunflower seeds that is? Like a bajillion.
Anywho, the Nationals are back at it again today against the Marlins at 1:05 p.m. in Viera, Fla. The biggest news from Spring Training is Bryce Harper, and he collected his first hit yesterday. Here is what Federal Baseball had to say about it.
Harper's second AB came in the seventh with runners on first and third following back-to-back singles by outfielders Corey Brown and Laynce Nix and a wild pitch by another hard-throwing Mets' right-hander, Bobby Parnell. Harper hit a grounder to first and reached on a fielder's choice when the Mets' first baseman threw home in time to get Corey Brown, who suffered a sprained ankle on the play.
Harper will probably get some playing time again today, as I'm assuming that the Nationals will work him into games in the later innings to try and get him acclimated. So who's ready for Bryce Harper to be a pinch runner today? Check out Federal Baseball for all the news you need to know about the Nationals Spring Training games.
