World Series: Bryce Harper Hits Memorable Home Run
After his great performance in Game 5 of the NLCS, Bryce Harper probably couldn't wait to play in front of his home fans at Citizens Bank Park.
It only took him one pitch to bring some of Philadelphia's legendary magic back to life in the World Series.
Harper homered on the first pitch he saw from Astros starter Lance McCullers Jr. in the first inning of Game 3.
He has now appeared in a total of 14 playoff games, during which he has collected a total of six home runs thus far.
The height of the explosion, as measured by Statcast, was 402 feet, and its exit velocity was 103.9 miles per hour.
In the second inning, Alec Bohm and Brandon Marsh each hit a solo home run, which helped the Phillies score two more runs.
Harper now needs one more home run to tie Jayson Werth's 2009 team record of seven home runs in a single postseason.
According to Sarah Langs of MLB.com, Bryce Harper owns the record for most extra-base hits in a single playoffs with 12 .
He has now recorded 11 career postseason home runs in a total of 33 games played in the postseason.
