Washington Nationals slugger Bryce Harper is off to a hot start this 2016 MLB season. Tuesday night against the Miami Marlins, he got even hotter.
The National League MVP hit his second grand slam of the season and is now 2-for-2 with bases loaded with a pair of home runs. Harper now has a .341 batting average and a 1.296 OPS (on-base plus slugging). For comparison, Los Angeles Angels superstar Mike Trout had an OPS of .991 last year.
But that is not even the best stat about Harper. So far this season, he has more home runs than strikeouts.
Bryce Harper: 2nd career grand slam. He has more HR (7) than strikeouts (6) this season.
