The only thing that had the home run beat was the celebration.

Harper seemed to realize he had done something ridiculous because he carried the bat handle with him all the way to first base, as if to make sure every understood what had just happened.

On a one to five ratings scale where 1.0 indicates a Strong Buy, 2.0 indicates a Buy, 3.0 a Hold, 4.0 a Sell and 5.0 a Stong Sell. Oppenheimer maintained the stock with "Buy" rating in Tuesday, February 20 report. (NYSE:DPZ) rating on Monday, September 11.

Bryce Harper hit his eighth home run of the season Monday when he took Jacob deGrom deep in the first inning to give the Nationals a 1-0 lead over the Mets. The pitch jammed Harper, and the Nationals slugger broke his bat cleanly in half on the swing. So far, 2018 is shaping up to be the Year of Bryce, and that's excellent news for baseball. Enough to hit a home run despite breaking his bat. And in most cases, the ball ekes over the fence in a short part of the ballpark instead of soaring 406 feet to right-center. This was the 2015 NL MVP's second homer in as many games.

On his way back to the dugout, Harper playfully pulled up his sleeve to show his biceps.
