Teenage (Four-) Base Land

According to our friends at Elias, last night Bryce Harper became the third teenager ever with more than one multihomer game in a season as a teenager, joining Ken Griffey Jr. in 1989 and Mel Ott in 1928.

Harper now has 17 homers as he continues to move up the teenage home run list:
