Bryce Harper is off to a red-hot start in 2018 and Monday night's feat is just the latest eye-popping occurance for the Nationals outfielder. According to MLB's website, the swing propelled the ball 406 feet, with an exit velocity of 99 miles per hour.

There is hitting a home run and breaking the bat.

Mets: RHP Zack Wheeler (1-0, 1.29) pitched seven sharp innings at Miami in his season debut, retiring the last 16 batters he faced. But whereas the vast majority of broken-bat hacks result in looping line drives or weak ground balls, Harper's generated enough power that the ball carried to right-centerfield, then kept carrying right over the fence for an absurd solo home run. He was cruising when he left with two on, one out and a five-run lead. "You're going to have ups and downs in this game, and you've got to be able to handle them".

Trump Campaign Continues Big Spending On Lawyers
Trump's campaign has also spent about $150,000 at Trump businesses, including the legal fees, per the FEC report. But legal fees weren't the only big expense: About $650,000 went toward campaign gear such as hats and mugs.

In Milwaukee, Billy Hamilton drove in three runs to help Cincinnati end an eight-game losing streak. Nola (1-1) gave up four hits, two runs and two walks in six innings.

The rest of the bat flew into the netting close to the Mets dugout.

Midway through, the Mets lead the Nats 2-1. Authorities said no injuries were reported, but several windows in nearby office buildings were smashed and at least one auto was struck.
