Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper crushed a grand slam on Thursday for the 100th home run of his career.

With the Atlanta Braves leading by a run in the bottom of the third inning, Harper connected with a 1–0 fastball, sending the ball deep into the right field stands. 

At just 23-years-old, Harper is the eighth-youngest player in MLB history to reach the 100-home run mark. 

The home run is the third for Harper this season.
