Nats' Harper leaves game with apparent left knee injury

But, when Harper hit first base, his left leg slipped on the bag, causing his knee to shoot straight back.

On the play, Jones fielded the ball and beat Harper to the bag as pitcher Jeff Samardzija raced over to cover the bag just in case.

Harper clutched at his left knee after going down and was attended to by trainers. Harper could put no weight on his left leg and needed assistance to leave the field. The Nationals are one of the few Major League Baseball teams that do not provide possible injury information during games.
