Bryce Harper got the last laugh on Tuesday night as he returned to Washington D.C. for the first time since signing the 13-year deal with the Phillies last month.
Harper, as expected, was booed by National fans when he stepped up to the plate for the first time.

With the Phillies up 6-2 in the 8th, Harper came to the plate once again, and this time he belted a 3-run shot and did one great bat flip.
