The future is certainly bright for the Washington Nationals, and Friday night was proof alone of that.
Bryce Harper and Stephen Strasburg, the two cornerstones of the Nationals organization (don't forget Ryan Zimmerman) had big nights down on the farm on Friday.
Harper, the 2010 No. 1 overall pick, hit a massive walk-off home run for the Double-A Harrisburg Senators just a few days after he made news by being ejected during a game. For Harper, it was his first home run as a member of the Harrisburg squad.
While Harper is still working his way up to the bigs, Strasburg is working his way back. The 2009 No. 1 pick is currently rehabbing after Tommy John surgery. He made his second rehab start on Friday night, tossing three scoreless innings while striking out five. The right-hander continued to hammer the strike zone by throwing 26 of his 33 pitches for strikes.
See the gargantuan blast from Harper in the video below (the 2:06 mark).
