The Nats' Bryce Harper has just come back from an injury to his toe and now this.
Bryce Harper hit the scoreboard wall face-first while tracking a ball hit by A.J. Ellis in the outfield over his left shoulder. He never looked at the wall and when he finally turned, he was on top of it. The impact sent Harper's cap flying as he bounced off the wall and crumpled to the ground, with Ellis getting a triple.
Harper didn't come back to the game as the Nats' won by a score of 6-2 over the Dodgers.
"As the ball kept going, I was like, 'Is he going to stop?'" Nationals center fielder Denard Span said. "He looked like he didn't get a good jump at all, like he was surprised the ball was hit to him. I thought he was going to jump and brace himself. As soon as he ran into it, his body locked up."
Harper laid on his back for minutes which seemed like hours due to the wonder of pain he was in.
