A day after outfielder Bryce Harper went 1-for-4 in a 3-0 victory over the Mets, manager Davey Johnson was concerned about Harper going into the dugout and breaking his bat after striking out in the eighth inning. He then angrily put his helmet in the helmet rack.
"I was more worried during the game when he started tearing up the helmet," Johnson said. "He expects himself to do well every time up. Sometimes, it doesn't happen that way. He takes it out on something. He needs to quit that."
