Bohm’s HR Phils helps beat the Nats after a 3 1/2 hour rain delay

Philadelphia (Associated Press) – Bryce Harper posted on Instagram a photoshopped photo of him wearing an Eagles baseball jersey and hitting a helmet with the caption “Go Birds.”

Good news for Harper, he didn’t have to miss the match.

Thanks to the franchise’s worst delay in the rain, all the Phillies turned into NFL fans the first weekend of the season.

“We have to be Eagles football fans for today, which is pretty cool,” said Rhys Hoskins, first baseman. “We can’t do that on Sundays during the year.”

Rain delay is long gone. Then the Phillies rolled in – and came close to joining the Eagles with meaningful games in October.
