The Washington Nationals and Atlanta Braves will play two on Saturday afternoon at Nationals Park and unfortunately, Nats outfielder, Bryce Harper's day may already be done.
According to the Twitter feed of Nationals beat reporter for the Examiner, Brian McNally, Harper injured himself while at the plate and fouling a ball off his foot:
Uh oh. Bryce Harper is out of the game. Fouled a ball off his foot earlier and Roger Bernadina now in CF.— Brian McNally (@bmcnally14) July 21, 2012
About 30 mins later, McNally gave an official status report from the Nationals on the extent of Harper's injury:
"Sore left ankle" is how the #Nats describe Bryce Harper's injury. Precautionary removal from the game. He was limping around pretty good— Brian McNally (@bmcnally14) July 21, 2012
