VIDEO: Bryce Harper Gets Mobbed After Walk-Off Double in Triple-A
By Tyler Maher
Bryce Harper appears to be enjoying his time in Triple-A.
After kicking off his rehab assignment with a two-homer game on Tuesday, the two-time NL MVP smashed a walk-off double in the bottom of the ninth on Wednesday, lifting Lehigh Valley to a 6-5 comeback victory.
Harper is now 5-for-8 with two doubles, two homers, and six RBIs in two games with Lehigh Valley as he works his way back from a broken thumb. The IronPigs have won both of their games with Harper, so they'll miss him when he rejoins the Philadelphia Phillies.
His return can not come soon enough for the Phillies, who are currently holding one of the three NL Wild Card spots despite losing Harper for two months. With the seven-time All-Star expected to provide a boost down the stretch, Philadelphia has -800 odds to make the playoffs on FanDuel Sportsbook's MLB odds.
