Nationals' Bryce Harper Leaves Game With Apparent Knee Injury

Giants' opener postponed, double-header Sunday

Giants' opener postponed, double-header Sunday

In the bottom of the first inning, Bryce Harper hit a ground ball to first base and sprinted to the bag, racing past starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija.

The Giants' game vs the Nationals in Washington D.C. was postponed Friday night due to weather.

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

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. Harper didn't put any weight on his left leg and had his head down as he was assisted off the field and through the Nationals dugout. It was still raining when Harper's injury happened. The Nationals and Giants are set to play a doubleheader on Sunday. He played in 105 of Washington's first 113 games.

After a down year by his standards in 2016, he is once again among the league's top hitters in 2017, batting.326 with 29 home runs and 87 RBI.

Because of a bevy of injuries, the Nationals have used 12 outfielders this season.
