Harper went yard in his first at-bat against the New York Mets on Monday night.

"Barreled it pretty good", Harper told Associated Press. Between that time of that and the cameras cutting to the outfield, the expected result would be the right fielder tracking down a fly ball. The solo shot was his eighth of the season and came on the first pitch from Mets starter Jacob deGrom. Kurt Suzuki's sacrifice fly in the fourth inning broke a 1-1 tie. "I heard the bat break and then I looked, I saw Nimmo, he just kept going so I was like, 'Oh, well, I guess that's out of here'".

While the player himself made his way round the bases to the crowd's applause. first base coach Tim Boger was picking up the broken bat, handing it to a nearby bat boy. "I said, 'Yeah, you're strong, '" Nationals manager Dave Martinez said. Entering Monday's game, the 25-year-old outfielder was also leading the majors in walks (20) and OPS (1.219), and he is already just one homer short of matching his career high through the end of April (nine in 2013, 2016 and 2017).
