- Harper to center this time. See you later. That's way up the batter's eye. 5-0 Nationals. The state of Pennsylvania has just about had it with this guy.

- 473 feet. And a long hug for that one. 112 miles an hour. That almost hit the cameramen in center field. Are you kidding me, Bryce Harper?

- So here's Ian Desmond. Top of the second. He got a slider, and look at this. See you later. To the top of the bleachers in left field.

- Wow.

- Number 15 for Desmond. And I'll tell you, Jake Peavy is not fooling anybody in the Nats lineup so far.

- No, they've had some good swings. Bryce still in shock. I'm right there with Bryce.

- Michael represents the tying run with the Nats down 2-0. Swing and a long drive, left center field. And he represents the tying run. He delivers the tying run. Long gone, about 10 rows deep in left center between the 390 and 415 marks.

- Well, that one certainly airborne, Dave. At 10 rows, that ball bounced-- well, maybe a dozen or so rows-- and went out of the main concourse up there below the Rockpile seats to the left of dead center field. Tremendous blast by Taylor. When he gets a hold of it anywhere, it flies. It flies even a longer way here in this thin air.
