Bryce Harper had his own “flu game” last night. After missing Monday night against the Marlins with the flu, Harper was given IV fluids on Tuesday and ended up going 4-for-5. Wasn’t quite the epic proportions of Michael Jordan’s flu game, but it’s still impressive.
“I didn’t feel very good at all. I was bent over at home plate multiple times.” – Bryce Harper, who threw up in the second inning.
“I thought he was going to die every time he went up there and he got a hit.” – Davey Johnson.
“Every AB I didn’t feel very good at all. The whole game I was struggling a little bit… The biggest thing was trying to keep everything down and fluids down. I think getting in the box and swinging made my head spin a little bit.” – Bryce Harper, stomach of steel.
You can see all four of Harper’s hits here. No vomiting though.
