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.
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.
