The faithful at Citizens Bank Park offered boos for the mere mention of Bryce Harper’s name during pregame introductions. Harper backtracked a bit from his statement yesterday that he hoped fans would not throw batteries at him, saying Philadelphia has great fans who support all its teams. As for the incident in the team’s last meeting, when Cole Hamels admitted to drilling him with a pitch on purpose, Harper said, “I’m not even thinking about it.”
As always, talk about the game right here. And follow the action here.
