Bryce Harper Leaves Game vs. Giants with Knee Injury

Nationals superstar right fielder Bryce Harper had to leave Saturday's game after suffering a leg injury in the first inning.

According to the Washington Post's Jorge Castillo, Harper hurt his knee when he lunged for first base trying to beat out a ground ball.

Harper clutched at his left knee after going down and was attended to by trainers. He was carried off the field without putting weight on his left leg.

The game had been delayed for three hours because of heavy rains.
