Bryce Harper leaves game with apparent knee injury

During the first inning of the Nationals' game against the visiting San Francisco Giants, star outfielder Bryce Harper's leg buckled as he touched first base. Harper was attempting to beat out a ground ball, but when his foot hit the wet base, his knee jerked violently and he immediately fell to the ground and started clutching his left knee in pain.

Kensico Capital Management Corp increased Twenty First Centy Fox Inc (FOXA) stake by 3.21% reported in 2016Q4 SEC filing. The rating scale runs from 1 to 5 with 5 indicating a Strong Sell, 1 indicating a Strong Buy and 3 indicating a Hold.


With Harper gone for the time being, who replaced Harper in the Nationals outfield? Harper, trying to beat out the throw, landed awkwardly on the base and had to be taken off the field. Hitting coach Rick Schu and trainer Paul Lessard then helped him off the field. Saturday's game was delayed three hours with more inclement weather and the rain conditions came into play right away.

Charlottesville Police Chief Al Thomas said the suspect was taken into custody not far from the crash site. Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency in the city and police ordered the crowds to disperse.


This latest injury could put a damper on the impressive season and create trouble for the Nationals. The big boppers in the middle of the order have stayed relatively healthy and the top four in the rotation have avoided major problems, though Stephen Strasburg is one of Washington's 11 players on the disabled list.
