Video Game Numbers: Bryce Harper continues to dominate the minor leagues, Phillies hope to get him back this weekend
Bryce Harper, as expected, continues to dominate the minor leagues.
Last night, Harper handed the Lehigh Valley IronPigs with a 6-5 win thanks to a walk-off two-run double in the ninth inning.
Bryce Harper Walk-Off
Harper finished the night 3-for-5 with two RBIs and a strikeout, while in the DH position for the IronPigs and batting second.
Over the last two games, Harper is now 5-for-8 with two home runs, two doubles, three runs scored, six RBIs, two walks, and an almost unheard of and quite frankly, unfair 2.325 OPS.
Ideally, Harper’s rehab assignment could end as early as Friday. What’s more likely, is that it will end Saturday and Harper will rejoin the Phillies on Monday when they hit the road to face the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Another note from Lehigh Valley, Scott Kingery went 2-for-4 last night with 2 RBI, including a home run in the 3rd inning. He also scored two runs.

Up Next for the Phillies
The Phillies will go for the four-game sweep of the Cincinnati Reds tonight at Citizens Bank Park. Aaron Nola is on the mound. This weekend, they will face the Pittsburgh Pirates at home before hitting the road to play the D-Backs and Giants.
