    Bryce Harper broke up the Phillies postseason party on the mound and directed his team to where the true revelry was about to begin for the National League champs.

    ''C'mon, let's go inside! Let's go!'' he ordered.

    With that, Harper walked toward the dugout and raised his arms in jubilation to the soundtrack of Phillies fans screaming ''MV3! MV3! '' The Phillies scrambled inside for the Broad Street Bubbly that awaited in the clubhouse.

    Harper made the scene possible because he rose to the moment Philly demanded of him from the time he signed the richest free-agent deal in baseball history. Harper has made the monumental feat of hitting a baseball look so easy in the postseason and with the NL pennant at stake, he delivered with the defining moment of his four-year Philadelphia career.

    Harper slugged his fifth homer of the postseason, a two-run blast in the eighth inning that turned Citizens Bank Park into a madhouse, and the $330 million slugger powered the Phillies past the San Diego Padres 4-3 on Sunday and into the World Series for the first the time since 2009.
