Bryce Harper had a busy evening during a game against the Braves tonight! First, he hit a home run in the bottom of the third inning and trotted around the bases very, very, very slooooooowly, which didn't sit too well with some of the Braves players. Then, he got hit by a pitch during his next at-bat. And finally, he freaked the fuck out and yelled a handful of obscenities at Atlanta pitcher Julio Teheran on his way to first base after getting hit and forced both benches to clear.
Fortunately, no punches were thrown. But there were some jabs exchanged by the Braves and Nationals Twitter accounts:
@Braves Which part, giving up the home run, or drilling the 20-year-old on the first pitch his next time up?— Washington Nationals (@Nationals) August 7, 2013
The Braves ended up getting a 2-1 win. But the two teams will meet again tomorrow. If it's half as entertaining as tonight's game, it should be great.
