Washington Nationals rightfielder Bryce Harper exited in the ninth inning of Saturday’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park after being hit by a pitch from righthander Michael Blazek in the left knee.
With one out in the top of the ninth and the Nationals leading 7–2, Harper came to bat. The third pitch of the at-bat from righthander Michael Blazek was a 95 MPH fastball that struck Harper in the left knee.
If Harper does sit out Sunday‘s game, it will be the second he has missed this season, both due to hit-by-pitches.
