Bryce Harper is the beast of the NL East right now.

On Saturday, the Nationals’ 22-year-old right fielder hit his sixth home run in his last three games, this one a walk-off shot that gave Washington an 8-6 win over the Atlanta Braves.

Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer rewarded Harper by dousing him with chocolate syrup.

Harper hit three homers against Miami on Wednesday. Washington was off Thursday, but Harper added two more dingers against Atlanta on Friday night, becoming the youngest player to ever hit five home runs in two games.
