Bryce Harper in a desperate attempt to break funk, decides to switch things up and use teammates bat against Braves
Man this Phillies game is a bizarre one. We are in the top of the ninth inning and hold a 1-0 lead against the Braves. Jose Alvarado is back out on the mound to close this one out.
Bryce Harper has been STRUGGLING at the plate lately and is now trying everything to break out of recent funk. In the bottom of the 8th inning, Harper stepped up to the plate with a new bat in hand.
That bat belongs to Matt Vierling.

Look, something has got to give. Harper can’t figure things out on the plate and the Phillies are in desperate need of a win. It didn’t work this time but hey, you never know when the reigning NL MVP will break out of this. I appreciate the effort.
Matt Vierling, as you probably already know by now, walked it off last night against the Toronto Blue Jays and went 5-5 from the plate.
