Bryce Harper came off the bench on Sunday to tie the Nationals’ game against the Twins at 4–4 with a solo shot in the ninth.

Harper pinch hit for centerfielder Michael Taylor to lead off the frame, and took a 3-2 pitch from Kevin Jepsen deep to center on the seventh pitch of the at-bat.

The game went into extra innings, and starter Stephen Strasburg was let off the hook after allowing four runs on seven hits over 7 1/3.

Harper now has 10 home runs in 19 games.
