Harper not happy after getting brushed back by Giants' Menez

Bryce Harper is all too familiar with getting plunked by the Giants at Oracle Park.

The current Philadelphia Phillies and former Washington Nationals star had an explosive conflict with former Giants reliever Hunter Strickland four years ago after getting hit by a pitch. 

Fast forward to Saturday, Harper was batting for the Phillies in the top of the eighth inning when a pitch high and tight from Giants reliever Conner Menez more than brushed him off the plate.

Harper didn't seem pleased. 

A 90 mph pitch up near the head would probably elicit a similar reaction no matter who was in the box.

After falling out of the way, Harper took his time to collect himself and get right back in the box, only to fly out to left field.
