Bryce Harper, Ryan Zimmerman hit clutch home runs to lead Nationals over Cubs

Bryce Harper

With the Nationals trailing the Cubs 3-1, and Washington facing the imminent threat of falling behind 2-0 in the NLDS, Bryce Harper stepped up. In the bottom of the eighth inning, the 24-year-old five-time All-Star clobbered a two-run home run to right center field.

He absolutely destroyed the pitch from Cubs reliever Carl Edwards Jr.

Harper added a bat flip, too.

As soon as the celebration for Harper’s moonshot settled, the veteran Ryan Zimmerman followed it up with a three-run home run of his own, with this one coming at the expense of Cubs reliever Mike Montgomery. Zimmerman’s home run put Washington up 6-3.

The Nationals held on for the 6-3 win, tying their series with the reigning MLB champs at one game apiece.
