Bryce Harper has no ligament or tendon damage in knee

Washington Nationals Bryce Harper left prepares to hit San Francisco Giants Hunter Strickland after being hit with a pitch in the eighth inning of a baseball game Monday

The 15-year veteran had to mentally prepare to pitch again Saturday, and had to wait out an additional three hours because of more rain. They are bound to be upset and anxious now.

The outfielder entered this weekend's action hitting.326 with 29 homers and 87 RBI for the first-place Nationals. On the other side, the Nationals are 5-1 in their last six games overall, are 5-1 in their last six home games, and are 16-6 in their last 22 games versus National League West opponents.

There has been no update on Harper's injury. The Nationals and Giants are set to play a doubleheader on Sunday. He has a 3-2 record with a 3.86 ERA in 35 innings total. He retired 10 straight hitters after he gave up a two-run home run to Alex Avila that put the Cubs up 4-1 in the first inning.

Washington got three innings of scoreless relief from its recent bullpen acquisitions.

Video on social media showed a auto at high speed rear-ended another vehicle , then backed up and rammed into pedestrians. The auto ramming killed a 32-year-old woman and wounded 19 people, including some with life-threatening injuries.

On the play, Jones fielded the ball and beat Harper to the bag as pitcher Jeff Samardzija raced over to cover the bag just in case. Washington hopes the same fate doesn't happen to Harper.

Harper is on the 10-day disabled list, but his immediate availability is not the question for a team that holds a 14 ½-game lead in the NL East. Getting back their best player for the postseason is all that matters.

"He was in obvious pain, and he was praying and I was praying, too". The good thing is he's young and strong.

NOTES: Giants RHP Mark Melancon, who pitched a scoreless eighth inning, was activated off the disabled list and INF Miguel Gomez (right knee inflammation) was placed on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to August 9. The Washington Nationals have tabbed veteran right hander Max Scherzer as the starter against the San Francisco Giants.
