HARPER WAS 0-11, THEN HAD 3-JACK NIGHT IN PHILS WIN, WATCH!

By Peter Marks

Bryce Harper homered for his first three hits of the season, including a grand slam, and the Phillies beat the Reds 9-4.

Brandon Marsh also connected for Philadelphia, which bounced back after dropping the series opener on Monday. Spencer Turnbull struck out seven in five effective innings.

“It felt good going up there and hitting three homers,” Harper said.

“It was really cool. But obviously I thought Spencer threw the ball really well. … It was just really good from the pitching side.”

Harper went 0 for 11 with a walk while playing in three of the Phillies’ first four games, but he broke out in a big way against the Reds.

The two-time NL MVP hit a solo shot in the first and fourth innings against Graham Ashcraft. He capped Philadelphia’s five-run seventh against Brent Suter with his seventh career grand slam, a 422-foot drive to right-center.

It was Harper’s second career three-homer game and his 26th multihomer game overall. He finished with a career-best six RBI.
