Bryce Harper leaves game after running into right-field wall

Washington Nationals young phenom Bryce Harper left the team's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers Monday night after running into the right-field wall.

Tracking down a fly ball from Dodgers' catcher A.J. Ellis, Harper appeared surprised that he was nearing the wall and abruptly ran into the electronic scoreboard in Dodger Stadium. He stayed down on his back for more than a minute. Harper left the game on his own power but was bleeding from his neck. The Nationals were leading, 6-0, at the time.

Harper, 20, was batting .303 coming into Monday night's game. He has 10 homers, 21 RBI and a 1.022 OPS.

And here is a picture of the bloody aftermath:
