Diamondbacks Vs. Nationals: Bryce Harper's Eventful Bottom Of The Fourth

Bryce Harper recorded his first RBI and scored his first big-league run as the Washington Nationals took a 3-2 lead over the Arizona Diamonbacks after four innings at Nationals Park.

Batting with two outs and Danny Espinosa on second base, Harper cranked a Joe Saunders pitch off the right-center field wall to tie the game at 2-2. The next batter, Wilson Ramos, lined a shot off the glove of Arizona second baseman Aaron Hill. Harper tried to score from second base on the play and was able to knock Hill's throw out of the glove of catcher Miguel Montero.

Right now, that stands as the lead run. The Nationals lead the Diamondbacks, 3-2 in the top of the fifth.
