One Reds fan had particularly bad timing during Sunday’s matinee against the Nationals. Harper, who had already blasted a solo home run in the sixth inning, was facing reliever Raisel Iglesias with his team leading 5-3 in the ninth. With the count 2-2, the fan yelled “Overrated!” at Harper, who proceeded to drive an Iglesias fastball out to left-center field for his second solo homer of the day.
Harper also drew a walk, finishing 2-for-4 on the afternoon. The Nationals won 6-5, completing a series sweep of the Reds to open the 2018 regular season 3-0.
