Strickland, apparently still displeased that Harper yelled at him after hitting a home run in the 2014 NLDS, threw a fastball to the hip, Harper charged the mound and fists flew as the rest of the Giants - including catcher Buster Posey initially held back as if behind invisible ropes.

"We know each other real well because we were in the same division for a number of years when he was in San Diego and I was in San Francisco", Baker said.

Harper clutched at his knee while on the wet field and put no weight on his left leg as he was helped off.

Bryce Harper carried off the field.

The game between the Washington Nationals and San Francisco Giants on Saturday started three hours late due to rain. Harper is certainly someone the Nationals need in order to compete in October. We're just urging everybody out there that are Nationals fans and baseball fans to say a prayer for him tonight because he was in obvious pain out there. He has a 3-2 record with a 3.86 ERA in 35 innings total. Harper ranks fourth on the Nationals in bWAR at 4.6.

The San Francisco Giants lost a rain-soaked contest against the Washington Nationals on Saturday night, but it was the Nationals that took the bigger long-term hit on a rain-soaked evening in the nation's capital.

Harper, the 2015 National League MVP, is now tied for the Major League lead with 14 two-strike home runs this season and leads the MLB with 12 first-inning longballs. "I'm very optimistic that he'll be at least fine shortly", Baker said.

Stratton was reinstated from the disabled list and notched his second straight no-decision while making his second career major league start on Saturday against Arizona.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy wanted to make sure Mark Melancon's first appearance off the disabled list didn't come in a high-leverage situation after the $62 million closer missed more than six weeks with a right forearm strain.
