Bryce Harper and the Washington Nationals just wrapped up their interleague schedule by going 10-8 against the American League. Not only did the Nationals show that they can hold their own against the American League, but Harper proved that he is an intricate part of their success in doing so.
Harper did what he had to do against the AL to keep his team in first place in the NL East. His ability to handle the pressure on the big stage and his persistence to never be intimidated are just a couple of the highlights of Harper's interleague play.
We learned a lot in Harper's 18 interleague games but not all were positive. There were certain moments of weakness as well, including a five strikeout performance against the New York Yankees.
In the end though, Harper prevailed in interleague, coming out of it with a higher average and showing the American League that the Nats will be a team to be fearful of if they make it to the World Series.
