Giants-Nationals postponed by rain
Nationals right fielder Bryce Harper slipped on the first base bag attempting to beat out a grounder, injuring his left knee in the bottom of the first inning of the game Saturday night against the Giants at Nationals Park.
After the Harper injury, Ryan Zimmerman doubled and Daniel Murphy singled to put the Washington Nationals up 2-1, but the result tonight is small compared to what happened with Harper. He immediately grabbed his left knee while falling to the ground and writhed in pain behind first base.
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. The star outfielder put no weight on his left leg as he was helped off the field by hitting coach Rick Schu and head athletic trainer Paul Lessard. The Nationals and Giants are set to play a doubleheader on Sunday.
Harper was replaced by Andrew Stevenson, who took over in center field with Brian Goodwin moving to right. The league deemed the conditions playable after the rain slowed from its earlier levels, though the rain continued through the first inning.
Keep in mind, last year, catcher Wilson Ramos tore his ACL against the Arizona Diamondbacks in late September in a game that had a rain delay involved.
