Washington Nationals right fielder Bryce Harper avoided structural damage in his injured left knee but the All-Star will be out indefinitely because of a significant bone bruise, the team announced Sunday. Despite many fans waiting out the delay, the stadium went eerily silent in the minutes after Harper's injury.
Harper walking up the stairs provided some hope, and an MRI revealed what the WashingtonNationals hope is season-saving news.
Harper had to be carried off after not being able to put any weight on the leg. "We're just urging everybody out there that are Nationals fans and baseball fans to say a prayer for him tonight because he was in obvious pain out there".
Harper fell to the ground and held his left knee for several minutes. If Harper has that same injury, that would devastate the team's chances of reaching their ultimate goal of a World Series championship.
The game had been delayed due to heavy rains and it still was sprinkling when the game began. The Nationals are 69-45 and the Giants are 46-71, including 0-4 this year against Washington.
