Game 1 of the NLCS between the Philadelphia Phillies and San Diego Padres was a pitcher’s duel, but that doesn’t mean that the game was devoid of some fireworks.
Well, from the Padres side of things it was.
Schwarber’s was quite a shot too, as it traveled 488 feet into the stands and 120 mph off the bat.
After that home run was hit, the camera panned back to Harper who stood in awe with his mouth agape.

Harper Awestruck After Schwarber’s Blast
Is there any better way to react to that home run than the way Harper did?
That may have been one of the farthest and hardest hit home run balls in postseason history.
Schwarber connected and gave it a ride.
The two home runs were just enough for Zack Wheeler, who pitched seven innings and allowed just one hit on the night.
Harper too has experience hitting some big home runs, especially in the postseason.
His home run at Busch Stadium in Game 2 of the NL Wild Card Series generated a similar reaction.
But Harper’s face after Schwarber’s home run is how everybody was feeling after watching it fly out of Petco Park.
It’s a perfect, hilarious reaction and very meme-worthy.
Schwarber is no stranger to hitting bombs, having hit 32 a season ago and 46 this year.
But that might just be the longest and most impressive one he’s ever hit, especially considering how impressed Harper was with it.
We’ll see if Schwarber can hit another one like that in Game 2 this afternoon.
