With shortstop Jose Reyes and third baseman Hanley Ramirez conferring in the infield, a heads up Bryce Harper was able to swipe third base in the first inning of the Nationals-Marlins game last night.

The play went as Harper’s 11th steal of the season. It didn’t lead to a run, but it did have the Marlins embarrassed.

“Everybody’s head was down, and he took advantage of that,” manager Ozzie Guillen said.
