Bryce Harper exits early with apparent serious knee injury

Nationals right fielder Bryce Harper slipped on the first base bag attempting to beat out a grounder, injuring his left knee in the bottom of the first inning of the game Saturday night against the Giants at Nationals Park.

Harper clutched at his left knee after going down and was attended to by trainers.

Harper had to be carried off after not being able to put any weight on the leg.

Harper, 24, entered the game hitting.326 with 29 home runs and 87 RBIs this season.

The play occurred minutes into a game that started at 10:06 p.m. - after a three-hour, one-minute rain delay.

Earlier in the year, the Nationals lost center fielder Adam Eaton for the remainder of the season due to a torn left ACL which happened under similar circumstances.

The Nationals lead the NL East by 14 games despite those injuries and more to starters Stephen Strasburg and Joe Ross, relievers Shawn Kelley and Koda Glover and shortstop Trea Turner, but a long-term injury to Harper would be devastating to their prospects in October.
