Harper has bone bruise, Nats hopeful he's back this season

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

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

Bryce Harper is helped off the field after suffering the knee injury in the 1st inning Saturday night. Lou Piniella also won 1,835 games as a manager.

Harper suffered a bone bruise on the play and should be able to return to action by the end of the regular season. "There is a significant bone bruise when he hyperextended the knee, so although we feel like we dodged a bullet a bit here with any long-term ligament and tendon damage".

Shortly after the Giants took a 1-0 lead, Washington fought back with a pair of runs in the bottom of the inning off of Giants' starter Jeff Samardzija, but the Nationals won't remember the first inning for the comeback they managed. Scherzer comes off of a 3-2 win (ND) versus the Miami Marlins where he allowed both runs and struck out nine in seven frames. He was the Reds' manager in 2012 when the Giants rattled off three consecutive elimination wins in Cincinnati. Melancon has been on the disabled list with a right forearm strain since June 28 and had two strikeouts in an inning during a rehab assignment with Class-A San Jose on Wednesday.

"We know each other real well because we were in the same division for a number of years when he was in San Diego and I was in San Francisco", Baker said. Jackson fell to 2-2 with a 3.75 ERA in his last four starts.

The Nats now hold a 14-game lead in the National League East and have the third best record in baseball overall, so even if they lose Harper for the rest of the regular season, it's not likely they fall to the bottom of the rankings. Harper slipped on a wet base after on and off again sprinkles of rain. Hopefully, the injury looked worse than it really was.

He was helped off the field and did not put any weight on his left leg as athletic trainer Paul Lessard and hitting coach Rick Schu helped him to the clubhouse.
