There’s NOTHING shocking about Bryce Harper going yard against the Padres for his first MLB home run. Video here. We are the team that hands out firsts to other teams like it’s going out of style. We’re givers, not takers. Hitting for cycle? No hitters? Who needs ‘em? Not us. We’ll hand ‘em out for free though.
One of many examples from this season alone… You want to set a Dodgers record by striking by striking out 9 batters consecutively? Sure! Was it Koufax? Drysdale? Sutton? Fernando? Hershiser? Kershaw? No. No. No. No. No. No. Harang? Ding ding ding! Thank you, Padres!
Nice hit, Bryce. You’re welcome.
