Harper hit his grand slam in the third inning, hitting a fastball from Colombian starter Julio Teheran (0-2) to right-center field to become the eighth-youngest player in history to reach 100 home runs.
The reigning Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the Old Circuit achieved it with 23 years and 181 days. Hall of Famer Mel Ott was a year younger when he became the youngest to do so.
Stephen Strasburg (2-0) allowed two runs in 7 2/3 innings.
Venezuelan catcher Wilson Ramos hit a solo homer and added an RBI double for Washington, whose 7-1 record tied the 1974 Montreal Expos for the best eight-game start in franchise history.
Jason Hammel (1-0) pitched six shutout innings, driving in one run and scoring another to help the Chicago Cubs beat the Cincinnati Reds 8-1 in the team’s best start to a season since 1969.
