Bryce Harper heard the boo birds but got the last laugh in his first game back in D.C.
Battling Max Scherzer, Harper looked lost in his first two at-bats, striking out swinging while Nationals fans cheered his frustration.
But he turned the tide in his third at-bat, ripping a double to extend a Phillies' rally.
This is an interesting gut-check moment for Nats fans, who defended similar antics from Harper over the last seven seasons. Now that the shoe is on the other foot, it's not much fun.
Harper set the tone early for every interaction he has with the Nats over the next 13 seasons. He is embracing the villain's role.
