Bryce Harper wasted no time in picking up where he left off in his MVP 2015 season on Monday, hitting a home run in his very first at bat of the season.
Harper took a 2–2 pitch from Braves starter Julio Teheran out to right field in the top of the first to put Washington ahead 1–0. It was his fourth home run in 24 career at bats against Teheran.
The Nationals and Braves were tied at 2–2 after seven.
