Harper's left cleat appeared to slip on the wet first base bag as he leaned forward to try to beat Giants first baseman Ryder Jones.
After writhing in pain on the ground for a couple of minutes, Harper was helped off the field with assistance from trainer Paul Lessard and hitting coach Rick Schu. It still was raining when Harper's injury happened in a game that ended at 1:17 a.m. Sunday. His status will be updated when the team makes a formal announcement as to the exact nature of the injury. The base may have been slippery following a three-hour rain delay.

In goal, David de Gea remains a steadfast presence and the Spaniard is one of the best keepers in the Premier League . Home form let down United last season with their 10 home draws - the highest in the league.
Harper is hitting.326 with 29 home runs and 87 RBIs in 106 games and 402 at-bats for the first-place Nationals. The big boppers in the middle of the order have stayed relatively healthy and the top four in the rotation have avoided major problems, though Stephen Strasburg is one of Washington's 11 players on the disabled list.
Harper is under contract through next season and can be a free agent in the winter of 2018. And former Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda fractured his right wrist in a fall.
