Harper was drilled by Atlanta’s Julio Teheran on the first pitch of his next at-bat in the bottom of the fifth, earning Teheran a mouthful from the 20-year-old slugger and a clearing of both benches.[tweet https://twitter.com/AdamKilgoreWP/status/364908173330624514 width=”420″]
While no punches were thrown, the Braves’ official Twitter account mirrored the ever-classy reaction of the organization’s on-field product moments later.[tweet https://twitter.com/Braves/status/364909710111019008 width=”420″]
