Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper joined the 20-homer club in style, clubbing a 3-1 Bud Norris fastball into the third deck in right field at Nationals Park for a two-run homer, breaking a scoreless tie in the first inning.

It’s the 23-year-old’s fourth 20-homer season. As Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post notes, Harper is the 12th player in baseball history to have four 20-homer seasons before his 24th birthday.
Harper entered Wednesday’s action batting .248/.390/.471 with 19 homers and 52 RBI, as well as 72 walks to lead the majors.
