Harper now has three home runs in eight career postseason games. Only Mickey Mantle, Miguel Cabrera, and Andruw Jones have hit more (four) before turning 22 years old. Pretty good company there. As long as the Nationals hang around, Harper still has a chance to catch or surpass those guys. He turns 22 in 10 days.
