Bryce Harper reaches base seven times in one game without a swing

Bryce Harper reaches base seven times in one game without a swing

Officially, he was 0-for-0. He is the first player in 100 years to reach base seven times without recording an at-bat.

He was hit by a pitch and drew six walks (three intentional). Six walks in one game ties the all-time record.

"They took the bat completely out of Harper's hands over the last two games of this series; he did not receive an at-bat in his final 12 plate appearances."

Harper is currently sixth in the majors in on-base percentage although he is batting only .265.
