Nationals Bryce Harper carried off field with apparent knee injury

Nationals Bryce Harper carried off field with apparent knee injury

The All-Star right fielder, as a result of Saturday's fall at first base and hyperextension of his leg, sustained a significant bone bruise on the inside portion of the knee. The base may have been slippery following a three-hour rain delay.

Harper's face twisted in agony as he held his left knee. "I hope he's alright", Jones said. It might have been wet or something. As you can see, he went down in a heap. "It's insane, but it's definitely great to see him up in spirit and walking around". Jackson fell to 2-2 with a 3.75 ERA in his last four starts.

"Somehow he has our number".

"We enjoy our battles and being competitive against each other", Bochy said. "He's got good stuff".

"Jackson was a little shaky early, had a lot of pitches, but settled down in the middle innings and took us to our pen and took us to the seventh", Manager Dusty Baker said.

But they're just 5-9 in the playoffs and still haven't won a postseason series since the 1981 National League Division Series, when they were the Montreal Expos (the only postseason series win in franchise history).

Jackson got the nod last Saturday in place of Gio Gonzalez (paternity list), overcoming a four-run first inning to work four more clean frames in a 7-4 setback at the Chicago Cubs. Left-hander Sean Doolittle threw a flawless ninth for his eighth save with the Nationals. A moment of silence was observed before the game for the victims of the clash.

The Nationals and Giants will play at 10:05 a.m. and 4:05 p.m. Sunday, Pacific time.

"He really competed well". Jose Abreu hit two home runs to lead the White Sox.

Harper was hurt about 20 minutes after the first pitch, which came three hours later than planned because of a storm that hit Nationals Park in the evening.

DeJong's team-leading 17th homer in the bottom of the seventh finished the scoring for St Louis, which was held below eight runs for the first time since a 4-1 win on August 5 in Cincinnati.

Harper was limping but walking after the game. Harper had hit a ground ball to the right side and first baseman Ryder Jones made a lunging stop before racing to the bag. The All-Star has been sidelined since leaving his July 23 start at Arizona after two innings.

Harper was making an MVP case for himself before the injury with a slash line of.326/.419/.614 to go with 29 home runs and 87 RBI.

"He was in obvious pain, and he was praying and I was praying, too". That's what we usually do when things are in a bad way.

"He (Strickland) has, I think both of them have, it's one of those incidents you have to put behind you", Bochy said. The game will be in Woodbridge, Va., against the Salem (Va.) Red Sox, a farm team of Boston.

Chris Stratton is pitching Sunday's opener, Matt Moore the nightccap.
