Harper, Nationals reach $21.6 million deal for 2018 season

The Washington Nationals closer situation is still very messy after Shawn Kelley's blown save Sunday

The Phillies lost another game at the hands of the bullpen Saturday night. He also entered the game 4-2 with a 2.59 ERA this season. Manager Dusty Baker likened the interval to a mini all-star break, but wondered if the disruption would have ill effects.

"Max is a warrior", Baker said. "It's not a mental rest".

The Washington Nationals chose to skip the arbitration process with star slugger Bryce Harper this offseason.

The Washington Nationals have agreed to terms on a deal with Bryce Harper for the 2018 season, which is the past year of his deal before possibly testing free agency.

Harper picked up where he left off the day, hitting a home run in the first inning on Sunday after hitting a 2-run walk-off homer on Saturday. The most recent was by the St. Louis Cardinals, who zipped through Atlanta and Miami before returning to Busch Stadium to begin their weekend series with the Cubs, which ends today. Michele Marchetti got Italy's goal after Leon Draisaitl set up Ehrhoff's opener in his first start. Harper's still just 24 years of age, and he boasts an excellent career OPS+ of 141. Roark, meanwhile, had grown accustomed to having his starts impacted by weather and pitched early on as if the interruption was immaterial.

Hellickson, in his fourth start of the year against Washington and eighth overall, yielded six hits and three runs in five innings.

The toil caught up with him in the fourth inning. He then stole second as Roark recorded two outs and threatened to strand him.

Scherzer allowed two runs in the fourth and another in the sixth but escaped further damage when Brock Stassi was tagged out at home trying to score after misreading an infield single. But Stassi singled to drive in Altherr to tie the game at 1, and two batters later, Andrew Knapp had an RBI single to give the Phillies a 2-1 lead. Following Sunday afternoon's win, the Phillies were 5-6 against the Nationals this season.

Josh Reddick homered off the facing of the right-field second deck a pitch after Springer's first homer.

However, it was young center fielder Michael A. Taylor, thrust into the starting lineup with an injury to veteran Adam Eaton late last month, who hit a go-ahead homer in the eighth inning off the left field foul pole to give the Nationals a 6-5 win over the Philadelphia Phillies. The Phillies added another run in the fifth before the Nationals scored four runs of their own in the bottom of the fifth inning.

Yes, it's two games. His batting average is the second best in Major League Baseball behind teammate Ryan Zimmerman. Pivetta finished the game with 92 pitches in just 4.2 innings.

A battle between two of baseball's worst bullpens ensued.

The game then went scoreless until the ninth inning when Harper sent a moonshot into another stratosphere.

Looking pretty in pink in special Mother's Day uniforms, the AL East leaders stopped their first three-game losing streak since the season's opening week. But he recovered to secure the inning's third out and retired the side in the eighth.

Aaron Altherr went 0-3 but worked two walks.
