Nationals star Harper leaves shortly after slide on triple
PITTSBURGH (AP) Washington Nationals right fielder Bryce Harper left Sunday's game against Pittsburgh shortly after sliding into third base.
The reigning MVP led off the third with a triple for the NL East champions. He appeared to jar himself sliding around Pirates third baseman Jung Ho Kang and was checked by a trainer.
Harper stayed in the game at that point and scored on Anthony Rendon's double. Harper was replaced by Chris Heisey in right field for the bottom of the third.
