"We dodged a bullet here", said Rizzo, who also noted that it was "pretty remarkable" that Harper avoided a more significant injury to the ligaments or tendon in his knee.

In his first and only plate appearance against Samardzija, Harper roped a ball up the first base line that rookie Ryder Jones snagged with a dive toward the foul line.

Now, it looks like Harper could eveen be back this season if all goes well.

Dan Kolko of MASN said the Nationals didn't put an official timetable on the slugger's return but granted it "doesn't seem like a season-ender".

The San Francisco Giants and the Washington Nationals take the field in DC in a Sunday MLB match up.

PHILLIES 3, METS 1 Aaron Nola held an opponent to two runs or fewer for his 10th consecutive start, Freddy Galvis had a go-ahead single during a fifth-inning rally and host Philadelphia beat veteran-shedding NY. The 2015 MVP is hitting.326 with 29 home runs and 87 RBIs in 106 games this season, and his presence in the lineup is crucial to Washington playing deep into October. San Francisco would go on to win the game in extras, but Stratton didn't really help the cause.

Harper was walking around without a limp after the game, which is definitely a good sign, but ACL injuries are tricky in that sometimes they can go nearly completely unnoticed. The question becomes what happens if Harper misses playoff time.

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.
