WASHINGTON — This headline would be better if Statcast wasn’t a thing.

However, Statcast is a thing, which means we have some numbers on this absolute moonshot Bryce Harper launched Tuesday night.

Per Statcast, that ball — which definitely landed, we have confirmed — went 450 feet. It left Harper’s bat at a speed of 110 mph and an angle of 25 degrees.

In other words: The ball was hit very hard.

But Anthony Rendon, who is having one of those games with two home runs and a double, has a Statcast claim to fame of his own.

Rendon’s wasn’t the most impressive home run you’ll ever see. Harper’s was an absolute bolt.

Both get the job done.
