  • Baker doesn't expect fireworks this weekend (rain delay)

In the bottom of the first inning of Saturday's game between the Nationals and Giants, Bryce Harper hit a ground ball to first base and raced to the bag trying to beat Giants' Ryder Jones there.

Since the Giants don't come back to D.C. this year, it was Major League Baseball's call on whether or not this game should be played.

The Nationals and Giants game had already been delayed for several hours due to rain, so Nationals fans were already a little annoyed.

Nationals right-hander Edwin Jackson added: "When you see a calibre of player like that, or any player, go down like that, you hope for the best".

Max Scherzer (12-5) was to start the second game for the Nationals and Matt Moore (3-12) for the Giants in a makeup of Friday night's rainout.

Harper lunged toward first base and appeared to slide on the bag, hyperextending his left leg.

Harper is certainly someone the Nationals need in order to compete in October.

Harper will be out indefinitely, but this is still some rather tremendous news for the Nationals. Harper clutched at his knee while on the wet field and put no weight on his left leg as he was helped off.

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. The Nationals now lead the Giants 2-1 in the bottom of the third inning.

"He was in obvious pain, and he was praying and I was praying, too". Fellow outfielder Michael Taylor (right oblique strain) was activated from the 10-day disabled list in a corresponding move and will assume Harper's spot on the active roster for the time being.

"The good thing is he's young and strong", Baker said.
