Jayson Werth is looking to overcome his terrible season last year with the Washington Nationals, as he hit a .232. After signing to a seven-year, $126 million contract last year, he looks to live up to it this season. 

He did on a home run against the New York Mets, except however, he hit his truck. 

Sunday, Werth continued in his effort to turn the page on that disastrous season. Facing New York Mets prospect Matt Harvey, Werth hit what the Washington Post's Adam Kilgore termed "perhaps the hardest ball he's hit as a National" clear out of Space Coast Stadium in Viera, Fla.

Yep, clear out of the stadium, and right into Werth's very own truck - or so a groundskeeper told him.

"Can't win," Werth told reporters afterward, though noting he hadn't confirmed his stroke of bad luck, calling it, for now, "folklore."
Washington manager, Davey Johnson, even thought the ball was hardest hit he's ever seen. 

Good thing Werth has got his money so he can repair that truck now.
