Watch: Phillies' Bryce Harper stays hot with another grand slam

There is not a hotter team in baseball right now than the Philadelphia Phillies, and there might not be a hotter hitter than Bryce Harper.

Harper continued his recent surge on Tuesday night in a 10-1 rout against the Toronto Blue Jays by homering in his third consecutive game. This time it was a grand slam. It is already his second grand slam of the season. 

Have a look at it.

Back on April 14 Harper's average dropped to a season-low point of .190 in a 9-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates. Since then, however, he has gone on an absolute run that has seen him hit .330 over the next 18 games while hitting six home runs and driving in 21 runs. 

He also has a 1.160 OPS (.493 on-bas percentage and .667 slugging percentage) during that stretch of games. 

That resurgence has helped the Phillies go on an incredible 17-1 run to open up a three-game lead in the National League East over the Atlanta Braves.
