MLB: Flash! Bryce Harper steals second, third … and home plate for Phillies

MLB Flash Bryce Harper steals second third and home plate

The gardener Bryce Harper of the Philadelphia Phillies, I know stole third base in the bottom of the first inning, second in the fifth set, and home plate in the same inning to set a career high with three stolen bases in the same game.

It was the second time in Harper’s career that he stole the plate. The first was curiously against the Phillies and left-hander Cole Hamels on May 6, 2012 when he was just days away from making his MLB debut with the Washington Nationals. Here is the video of what happened today:

Harper walked and stole the third cushion in the first inning and singled on a double in the third. He singled, stole second, and advanced to third on a pick play in fifth.

It may interest you: Bryce Harper loves Acuna Jr. so much that this is what he had to say after learning of his injury

The left-handed pitcher of the Atlanta Braves, Max Fried, nearly caught Rhys Hoskins stealing after a pickoff throw -revire- to first, but Freddie Freeman’s throw to Ozzie Albies at second knocked Albies off base. Harper then went home as soon as Freeman released the ball. Albies didn’t have much power on his plate throw and Harper came in without sweeping.

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Bachelor of Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services in Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and after a few days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
