So maybe I'm mindfacting, but Harper seems to be struggling with pitches away and he seems to be determined to pull them.
In one of the most important at bats of the series, 8th inning, game tied, leadoff batter doubles, Harper up. A homerun would be nice but at the very minimum, move the runner to third. Which to me means, whatever you're trying to do, hit it to the right side.  So what does he do, hits it the opposite way, left side ground ball.  Not only was he not determined t pull the ball on that one, I honestly think he took pride in his ability to hit the other way.  He does not understand baseball.
