Bryce Harper went 1-for-3 with a home run, two RBI, and a walk in the 4-3 win over the Padres.
After J.T. Realmuto doubled to put the Phillies on the board in the third, Harper followed with a two-run shot off of Blake Snell to extend the lead.
He’s up to 23 homers on the year with a .291/.408/.567 triple slash, 52 RBI, and 12 steals across 424 plate appearances.
He’s playing his best ball in August with a 1.105 OPS in the month.
