    Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper's home runs are usually line drives, leaving the park just as fast as he sprints around the bases. Tuesday in Toronto, however, Harper hit the first mammoth homer of his career.

    There was absolutely no doubt about Harper's seventh homer of the season, which carried to deep right-center field before crashing off the "C" in the Blackberry sign. Be bold, indeed.

    Oh, and the Nats defeated the Blue Jays 4-2, earning their fifth consecutive victory and putting them in position to sweep their second consecutive series with Stephen Strasburg on the mound Wednesday.

    Winning is fun.
