WATCH PHILS BRYCE HARPER MISS A FACIAL AS BENCHES CLEAR!

By Peter Marks

The Phils and Giants dugouts and bullpens cleared in the fourth inning yesterday after Giants starter Kyle Harrison threw two straight pitches high and inside to Phillies slugger Bryce Harper.

Harper shouted at Harrison after the first pitch, which evened the count at 2-2.

Harrison’s next pitch was even tighter, hitting the knob of Harper’s bat for a foul ball.

Both dugouts emptied, but no punches were thrown and there were no ejections. Umpires issued a warning to each side.

“I maybe missed a little in, but I’m trying to get him out,” Harrison said. “He’s a good player so you’ve got to put it in spots where he might not be happy.”

Added Harper: “He didn’t mean to. … I just don’t want to get hit in the face.”

Harper grounded out to shortstop to end the inning, stranding runners at second and third. He later snapped an 0-for-14 skid with an RBI single in the eighth.
