Nationals Bryce Harper carried off field with apparent knee injury

Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper slips on the edge of the base as he tried to beat out a ground ball.

It had been raining for most of the night, as the game didn't start until around 10 p.m. E.T. following a three-hour rain delay. Assuming Harper doesn't hit any snags in the rehab process, he could be looking at a return to the field sometime in mid- to late September.

But they're just 5-9 in the playoffs and still haven't won a postseason series since the 1981 National League Division Series, when they were the Montreal Expos (the only postseason series win in franchise history).

Harper was unable to put weight on his leg and was carried off the field by his hitting coach and the team trainer. "He's going to get an MRI", Baker said of Harper.

The superstar outfielder is hitting.327 with 26 home runs and 81 RBI this season for the NL East-leading Nationals.

According to Robert Flores of MLB Network, Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo called the setback a bone bruise while noting Harper avoided ligament and tendon damage in the knee.

Were police morally right to pay a paedophile to inform?
XY said he was given a list of around ten Asian names by the police and these belonged to people he had spent time with. The jury did not hear evidence from the informant, a British-Asian man in his 30s with links to the defendants.

The Nationals are 45-43 when Harper is on the DL.

What would a prolonged injury mean for the Nationals? The team didn't have an immediate update on Harper's status.

Stratton was reinstated from the disabled list and notched his second straight no-decision while making his second career major league start on Saturday against Arizona. "I'm very optimistic that he'll be at least fine shortly", Baker said. Only moisture. The Nationals delayed the first pitch for a half-hour and had the field tarped under partly sunny skies because of an approaching thunderstorm.

The Nationals placed Harper on the 10-day disabled list with a hyperextended left knee.

Washington scored two runs in the last of the first take a 2-1 lead even though Harper was injured in the process.
