Nationals' Harper leaves with apparent knee injury

Nationals' Harper leaves with apparent knee injury

Washington Nationals star outfielder Bryce Harper had to be carried off the field during the first inning of the team's game against the San Francisco Giants after his knee buckled when he slipped on the first base bag. The injury occurred when Harper attempted to beat out a groundball to the first baseman. McCutchen, meanwhile, reported his left knee felt "fine" Saturday and could return Sunday. But, when Harper hit first base, his left leg slipped on the bag, causing his knee to shoot straight back.

Haper stayed on the ground in serious pain, and had to be helped off the field.

Saturday's game was delayed three hours with more inclement weather and the rain conditions came into play right away.
