Bryce Harper bowed to the Cheering Right Field Fans today at Citizens Bank Park, and a magical season just may have begun.
The Philadelphia Boys Choir were there, the 50 State Flags were there, Philly’s Bravest and Finest were there, the Giant American Flag was there and the Sky Divers delivered the first ball! Next, Andrew McCutchen launched his first HR of the season to lead off the game and the rout was on!
Followed by Makial “Who’s Michael” Franco’s HR and the coup de grace Grand Slam by Rhys Hoskins, The Fat Lady sang!
Aaron Nola was very sharp through his 6 innings of work and Pat Neshack innthe 9th shut the door in this Phillies rout.
Let’s all hope they go this way. The magic number is 161!
