Bryce Harper hits first Class AAA home run

(Dennis Nett/AP)

Harper followed with a single in his next at-bat, raising his average for the season to .242. Harper, 19, entered Sunday with a .292 on-base percentage and a .322 slugging percentage. Harper has a history of starting slow at new levels before breaking out. Harper could join the Nationals this season, but he will first have to convince them he’s ready for the majors.
