Bryce Harper homered into the bullpen restroom at Citizens Bank Park
The Phillies and Nationals entered the 10th inning of Sunday’s series finale tied at 1-1 and for some reason, the Phillies chose not to pitch around reigning NL MVP Bryce Harper. Harper made them pay for it, smoking a Jeanmar Gomez sinker into the visiting bullpen at Citizens Bank Park. As luck would have it, the ball went directly into the bullpen restroom.
Closer Jonathan Papelbon took the mound in the bottom of the 10th to try and nail down the save against his former team, but he couldn’t get the job done. Peter Bourjos hit a one-out double, then came around to score when Andres Blanco hit a line drive RBI single to left field, tying the game at 2-2. Freddy Galvis followed up with a double over the head of left fielder Jayson Werth to bring Blanco home for the walk-off 3-2 win.
