Bryce Harper shatters bat, powers Nationals past Mets

In a startling display, the Washington Nationals slugger shattered his bat into two pieces, yet still hit a long home run Monday night in an 8-6 win over the New York Mets. Harper still hit the ball out. According to MLB's website, the swing propelled the ball 406 feet, with an exit velocity of 99 miles per hour. However, the Nats would fall behind 6-1 before scoring seven unanswered runs in the eighth and ninth innings to come back and beat division-leading NY, 8-6.

Facing Jacob deGrom with two outs in the first inning, Bryce swung hard on an inside baseball, shattering his bat and leaving himself with only a handle in his hands.

Harper is used to giving fans something to cheer about, with over 150 home runs in his career, but his latest was certainly one to remember.
