Don't worry, the truck wasn't driving down the street.
Harper crushed the solo shot in the third inning of the Nationals' 6-4 win against the Arizona Diamondbacks Sunday at Chase Field in Phoenix, Ariz. The Nationals led 1-0 before the homer.
Washington's star player walked up to the plate to face Diamondbacks starter Zack Godley. The 6-foot-3 righty threw three consecutive balls to Harper, before tossing in a 90.1 mph sinker.
Harper quickly turned on the pitch, which came in just above the center of the strike zone. His hack resulted in the ball flying all the way up the first section of stands in right field, just below a platform holding up the truck.
The 449-foot dinger left the park at 115.1 mph at a 25 degree launch angle, according to Statcast.
