Bryce Harper futures game: no hits, one giant throw
The future of everything went 0-for-4 on the afternoon, with two strikeouts, including one in the crucial 8th inning, when he went down swinging. In the first inning, he struck out looking. Sandwiched in between the k's were two weak ground balls to the right side.
Harper wasn't too upset with his performance, saying: “I don’t care what I did today, actually. I really don’t." If he had actually hit the ball out of the infield, he might have felt otherwise. To be fair, Harper was only recently promoted to Double-A, and unlike the offensive heroes of the game — Austin Romine, Tim Beckham, and Nolan Arenado — he hasn't had the chance to play multiple years in the minor leagues.
It wasn't all bad for Harper, who made an impressive, if misguided, play in the 6th. From the fence, he threw a rope to the plate — a one-hop wonder that sailed over the cutoff man, allowing the batter to take third.
