CSNWashington: Harper’s walkoff homer could be start of something for Nats

NBC on Yahoo Sports

If Bryce Harper is going strong, odds are the Nationals are going strong, so his walkoff home run on Thursday night should bode very well for both parties.

The second-year slugger drilled a two-run bomb with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning to beat the Pirates and snap a six-game skid for Washington. After failing to drive in a single run over his last 10 games, Harper's 3-for-5, two-RBI performance comes as a much needed boost for Washington, and for Nats fans, hopefully foreshadows good things to come.
