Shattering strength: Nats' Bryce Harper breaks bat and still homers

Shattering strength: Nats' Bryce Harper breaks bat and still homers

It is safe to say, however, that Harper will not be using his 33½-inch, 31½-ounce Marucci bat again, after it was shattered in two pieces, splitting just above his hand. According to MLB's website, the swing propelled the ball 406 feet, with an exit velocity of 99 miles per hour.

On the first pitch he saw from New York's Jacob DeGrom, Harper mashed a 406-foot home run to right-center, despite his bat breaking in two.

Mets: RHP Zack Wheeler (1-0, 1.29) pitched seven sharp innings at Miami in his season debut, retiring the last 16 batters he faced.

That home run, by the way, was No. 8 on the season for Harper.




Aaron Judge became the fastest major leaguer to hit 60 career homers, and Gregorius finished with three RBIs.

"There are a lot of hidden things that go into hitting but, for me, it's just trying to keep consistent, especially in my cage work, my pregame work", Story said. He also drove in a run with a safety squeeze. The Reds broke the game open in the sixth, scoring six runs and hitting four doubles off Milwaukee reliever Oliver Drake.

Harper's two-run single off Jerry Blevins made it 6-3.

Midway through, the Mets lead the Nats 2-1. As he trotted up the first base line, the Nationals slugger was still holding the shard that remained from when most of the bat flew away on contact.
