PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — “Oh my God!” Those three words John Kruk uttered when Bryce Harper hit an epic walk-off grand slam in the Phillies’ 7-5 win over the Chicago Cubs are going viral.
Phillies fans couldn’t contain their excitement on Bryce’s bomb and they turned their attention on social to Kruk’s reaction when the ball left Harper’s bat.
John Kruk’s “OH MY GOD” the moment Bryce connected is hilarious. (Bryce sprinting around the bases: also really good.) https://t.co/o48IkRn3zs

1. John Kruk screaming "OH MY GOD!" upon contact is everything
2. That ball hasn't landed yet
3. Charlie Manuel is a sorcerer https://t.co/kp8kKa9Wih

The way John Kruk says “OH MY GOD” the second Bryce hit that walk off is laugh out loud funny. Sounded like he was concerned for someone safety in the stands

John Kruk’s “oh my god!” overtop of the play-by-play really did it for me on the Harper bomb

Harper sprinted around the bases and celebrated wildly with his teammates at home plate.
He even nearly tackled new hitting coach and Phillies legend Charlie Manuel to the ground during the celebration.
