Bryce Harper hit one of the most massive home runs of the 2019 MLB season on Thursday night, blasting a walk-off grand slam into the upper deck of Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia to cap a five-run comeback for the Phillies against the Chicago Cubs.

Entering the bottom of the ninth trailing 5-1, the Phillies were able to rally to get a few runs back early in the inning and then load the bases for Harper.

On a 2-2 count and down to the Phillies final two outs of the night, Harper scooped an absolute rocket into the upper deck, sending the home crowd into hysterics.

The ball came off Harper’s bat with one of the most satisfying *smacks* you’ll hear in baseball, prompting Phillies color commentator John Kruk to exclaim “OH MY GOD” as soon as he made contact.
