Harper and the Nats

We’ll the Miracle Mets seem to be a thing of the past as the Nationals sit all alone atop the NL East.  They have beat the Yankees the last 2 nights and they were without Bryce Harper and Matt Williams last night because of ejections.

Both were ejected in the bottom of the third after a relatively quick exchange with the home plate umpire .  Harper wasn’t even in the batters box when he got the hook and this is his second ejection this week.

Matt Williams was quoted after the game saying Harper is the “best player on the planet right now.”  I like it.  Great new title for Harper.

Drew Storen struck out Arod to end the game and earn his 12th save of the season.  The Yankees have lost their last 7 of 8.
