Friday's Giants Nationals was postponed due to rain but the Nationals took their time letting everyone know about the decision

Oddly enough, Samardzija was the nearest body to Harper when his foot slipped on first base Saturday night. The play was not pretty.

WASHINGTON - The Giants' baseball marathon resumes with Sunday's day game at Nationals Park, the second of three games in a 24-hour span. They are bound to be upset and anxious now.

Harper entered the game ranked fourth in the NL in hitting (.326), fourth in on-base percentage (.419), third in slugging (.619) and second in OPS (1.034). With a split doubleheader looming Sunday, the last thing these teams wanted was to start Saturday's game and lose both starting pitchers to a lengthy delay after two or three innings.

Kyle Walker , Bernardo Silva , Danilo , Benjamin Mendy and Ederson have all arrived as City splashed out over £200million. So yes, we'll look at having as many good experiences as we can, and that goes for the whole season, not just the start.

"He was in obvious pain and he was praying and I was praying, too", said manager Dusty Baker, adding that Harper would have an MRI. It was Samardzija who was racing into a scrum earlier this season to get to Harper, but Michael Morse got in the way and saw his season end instead. The Giants (46-70) are almost 35 games behind the first-place Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League West, and the Nationals (68-45) are 15 games ahead in the National League East after a 3-2 win on Thursday at home against the Miami Marlins.

Despite the horrific accident, Harper did manage to walk around the club house following the game.

The 24-year-old Harper is a five-time All-Star and was the National League MVP in 2015. "I have tremendous respect for Dusty". Scherzer comes off of a 3-2 win (ND) versus the Miami Marlins where he allowed both runs and struck out nine in seven frames.

Along with being rivals, Baker and Bochy are friends. Washington hopes the same fate doesn't happen to Harper.

The latest weird weather situation comes at Nationals Park, which famously had a three-hour, no-rain rain delay against the Atlanta Braves on July 6.

"You're just thinking, 'Please, Lord, don't let it be serious, '" Baker said. That game started after 10 p.m., with a sparse crowd in attendance, a repeat that was spared Friday night.

While its members acknowledge the concern, they also say it guarantees solidarity in decisions and statements they come up with. A more direct warning was aimed at the United States in a government statement published by the state-run KCNA news agency.

Should Strickland and Harper face off this weekend, it's unlikely that any fireworks would take place. Stratton has taken the spot of Matt Cain in the rotation.
