Bryce Harper put the Phillies into the World Series with a go-ahead home run against the Padres and Philadelphia went wild.

Bryce Harper just sent the Phillies to the World Series and probably put himself into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

That’s because the Phillies DH hit one of the most clutch home runs in the eighth inning of Game 5 against the Padres.

Philadelphia trailed 3-2 as the game approached its final stages. Harper came to the plate with hopes of being the hero and he didn’t let the city down. His 382-foot bomb put the Phillies up 4-3. They went on to win it by that score.

Twitter, especially Philadelphia Twitter, lost its mind over the home run.

Best tweets after Bryce Harper hit clutch homer for Phillies

The Phillies bet on Harper in 2019 and this is exactly why. He’s a difference-making talent and he’s spent 2022 proving it. Whatever doubts fans may have had about paying the big money will have left their thoughts completely the moment that ball left his bat. When he’s making moments like that, he’s worth every penny and more.

It was an utterly epic moment that MLB fans will remember for a long time if Harper and company follow through.

No one had Philadelphia going far in the playoffs. Less than no one had them making it to the World Series. They’re a long way from the squad that hadn’t made it to the playoffs since 2011. With the help of Harper, they are now so close they can taste that championship. They’re four wins away.
