Of all the feats Bryce Harper has pulled off in his six-year Major League Baseball career, perhaps none has been quite as remarkable, impressive and downright preposterous than what he accomplished during Monday night during the Nationals-Mets game.

"Barreled it pretty good", Harper told Associated Press.

The only thing that had the home run beat was the celebration.

This apparent injury is bad timing for Profar, as he just got the opportunity to start at shortstop after Elvis Andrus went down with an injury. Wilmer Difo tied it with a two-out, two-run single off Jeurys Familia, and Michael A. Taylor drew a bases-loaded walk from the NY closer for a 7-6 lead.

NEW YORK (AP) - This was shear power by Bryce Harper. Between that time of that and the cameras cutting to the outfield, the expected result would be the right fielder tracking down a fly ball. On his way back to the dugout, Harper playfully pulled up his sleeve to show his biceps. Mets have three hits but only one run.

DeGrom struck out 12 in 7 1/3 innings, the longest outing by a Mets pitcher this season. Manager Mickey Callaway says Cespedes' timing at the plate is slightly off, and felt a break might help.
