Nats' Harper Leaves Game With Apparent Left Knee Injury

Nats' Harper Leaves Game With Apparent Left Knee Injury

Harper struck first base awkwardly while running out a grounder and immediately fell to the ground in pain after appearing to slip on top of the bag.

Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper left the first inning of Saturday's game with an apparent knee injury.

Harper clutched at his left knee after going down and was attended to by trainers.

Harper had to be carried off after not being able to put any weight on the leg. The base may have been slippery following a three-hour rain delay.

Trump's approval rating up after tough North Korea talk, new poll shows
Are we supposed to be comforted by a president who exaggerates as well as threatens an unpredictable and unsafe foreign dictator? His appointments process has been the slowest in 40 years, as he has so far nominated only 319 individuals for 970 positions .

The Nationals can survive those injuries, but if Harper goes down for the year we're not sure they can survive that.

Major League Baseball was in control of weather decisions because it's the Giants' final trip to Washington this season.

Harper was replaced by Andrew Stevenson, who took over in center field with Brian Goodwin moving to right.

The Nationals now hold a 14-game lead in the National League East, and it doesn't seem that there will a be historic collapse for the team.
