Nationals Bryce Harper carried off field with apparent knee injury

Giants GM says concussion DL is a consideration for Joe Panik

NOTES: Giants RHP Mark Melancon, who pitched a scoreless eighth inning, was activated off the disabled list and INF Miguel Gomez (right knee inflammation) was placed on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to August 9.

Fantasy Impact Everyone feared the worst when Harper slipped on first base and fell awkwardly. The 33-year-old's ERA improved to 3.30 in five starts since joining the team.

Harper sustained the injury in the first inning while rounding first base.

"Jackson was a little shaky early, had a lot of pitches, but settled down in the middle innings and took us to our pen and took us to the seventh", Manager Dusty Baker said.

During Baker's two years between jobs, Giants manager Bruce Bochy passed him on the all-time managerial victories list.

Harper should be back by the end of the season, Rizzo said. As noted in the chart, the Nats have been average when Harper has missed significant time. Given injuries to Harper, Stephen Strasburg - who has a rehab assignment Monday - and others, the Nationals' focus is getting healthy for the playoffs.

Talking to media in Gorakhpur , senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said, "We are deeply saddened by the incident". The issue of settlement of the pending money is what costed the lives of little ones.

And it would mean that Major League Baseball's greatest stage would be deprived one of its most talented and recognizable players - one of few legitimate and marketable stars who resonate beyond casual fans of the game. The All-Star has been sidelined since leaving his July 23 start at Arizona after two innings.

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.

OUR PREDICTION: The Giants have lost four straight meetings with the Nationals, have dropped five of six games in D.C., and are just 1-5 in their last six road games versus a team with a winning home record. Baker said he hopes that's not the case with Harper.

"He (Strickland) has, I think both of them have, it's one of those incidents you have to put behind you", Bochy said. Harper is hitting.326 with 29 home runs and 87 RBIs as the most fearsome hitter in the league.

Virginia was in the news Saturday for the racial unrest that took place.
