Bryce Harper's Scary Knee Injury Diagnosed As A "Significant" Bone Bruise

Start of Giants-Nats series pushed back by rain

Friday night's Giants-Nationals game postponed due to inclement weather

Jones reached the base first for the out, but as soon as Harper's left foot touched the bag, he went airborne. The thousands in attendance - those who remained after a three-hour one-minute rain delay - were in shock. In an effort to avoid contact with Giants first baseman Ryder Jones, Harper slipped on the base.

Haper stayed on the ground in serious pain, and had to be helped off the field.

The Nationals are optimistic that Harper will return at some point this season. In his only start against Washington this season, Moore allowed two runs and six hits in seven innings and took the loss. All the while - down the dugout stairs, then down the tunnel to the clubhouse - he put no weight on his injured left leg. Strickland, apparently still displeased that Harper yelled at him after hitting a home run in the 2014 NLDS, threw a fastball to the hip, Harper charged the mound and fists flew as the rest of the Giants - including catcher Buster Posey initially held back as if behind invisible ropes. Nationals' general manager Mike Rizzo told reporters that he doesn't believe the injury is season-ending, but doesn't have a clear timetable in mind for Harper's recovery just yet. Forget the part where the Nationals haven't even won a postseason series since 1981, when they were the Expos, and how losing Harper was going to make that a much more hard hill to climb.

Justice Department launches civil rights investigation into Charlottesville violence
On Saturday afternoon, a Virginia State Police helicopter assisting in monitoring the protests crashed in Albermarle County. Police said the helicopter was helping law enforcement officers monitor the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville .

With Harper out, the Nationals got their offense in the form of RBI doubles from Ryan Zimmerman and Adam Lind, and an RBI single from Daniel Murphy off Giants starter Jeff Samardzjia (7-12). "He's definitely one of those guys that you can't replace on a team". "I couldn't get the ball down in the first inning".

Washington won the game 3-1. Kolko also added Michael A. Taylor will come off the disabled list to take Harper's spot on the roster while the latter heads to the DL.

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.
