Harper-less Nats lose doubleheader opener to Giants 4-2

Strickland, Giants unlikely to receive warm welcome in Washington
Rizzo, who spoke to the media, said Harper will be placed on the disabled list.
Even after having the tarp on the field for three hours of rain, the field was still wet, and Harper's foot slipped as he hit the bag. On the other side, the Nationals have won four of their last five games, are 4-1 in their last five home games, and are 15-6 in their last 21 games versus National League West opponents.
It was easy to assume that Harper was gone for the season, and it was just as easy to start worry about when he would be back in 2018.
Jackson (3-2) kept his composure after allowing a solo home run from Giants second baseman Joe Panik in the first inning, and was the winning pitcher in the 3-1 Nats victory.
As a result of the rainout, Nationals manager Dusty Baker had to wait another day to catch Bochy on the all-time wins list. It's been more than a month since manager Bruce Bochy addressed Morse's health on the record, and he said he hoped that Morse might be able to return to the club in September.
As per usual with the Washington Nationals, no injury news is usually given until after the game and its unlikely we will know the full diagnosis until some point during the doubleheader tomorrow.
On a sunny day in the nation's capital the rookie had by far the best outing of his big league career, striking out 10 to lead the Giants to a 4-2 win over the Nationals.
Zimmerman had an RBI double and Daniel Murphy drove in a run with a single after Harper, the third batter for the Nationals, left the game.
The Nationals are 14 games up on the Marlins in the NL East, and a long-term injury for Harper would obviously be a huge blow to the team's playoff chances. He is among the National League's leaders in batting average, home runs and RBIs this season. The All-Star has been sidelined since leaving his July 23 start at Arizona after two innings. And they won't have a rested starter to take the ball on Wednesday.
