The Washington Nationals highly-touted young left fielder Bryce Harper is making his home debut tonight at Nationals Park against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Receiving a standing ovation, his first step to the plate in the bottom of the second inning, though, wasn't overly spectacular.
The 19-year-old looked, well, 19, striking out on two outside changeups from Arizona starter Trevor Cahill. Harper made his major league debut on Saturday against the Los Angles Dodgers.
