Bryce Harper Gets Three Hits, Sacrifice Bunt In Third Game In Double-A

Bryce Harper's first three games with Double-A Harrisburg have been a major success. On Wednesday night, Harper had what was probably his best game since being called up from Single-A on Monday. He went 3-3 with an RBI, a stolen base and even a sacrifice bunt as Harrisburg defeated Erie, 4-3.

Harper's three hits were all singles, so he isn't just someone that will mash the ball. His first single was originally ruled an error, but it was later changed to a base hit and an RBI. He also was called upon to sacrifice bunt to move runners over to second and third base, and did so successfully. I'm not sure why he was asked to sacrifice bunt, but that's neither here nor there.

Overall, Harper is now hitting .500 in three games, with two RBI, one stolen base and, yes, one sacrifice bunt.
