Bryce Harper came up big again Tuesday but it wasn't enough, as he doubled in a run and hit a long solo homer in a loss to the Giants in Game 4 of the NLDS.
Harper doubled in Ian Desmond in the fifth inning to cut the Giants' lead to one and he again took Hunter Strickland deep in the seventh with a blast into McCovey Cove to knot things up. He also walked with two outs in the ninth inning but was stranded when Wilson Ramos grounded out to end it. Harper hit three homers and slugged .882 during the NLDS. Oct 8 - 12:35 AM

Bryce Harper had a long solo homer and scored a pair of runs in Monday's victory over the Giants in Game 3 of the NLDS.

The game was scoreless after six innings, but Ian Desmond and Harper came around to score in the seventh on a throwing error by Madison Bumgarner. The Nats added another run that inning on an Asdrubal Cabrera RBI single and then Harper provided some insurance with a mammoth shot to right field that nearly reached McCovey Cove. Harper also made a nice catch in the bottom of the seventh that might have saved a run. Manager Matt Williams considered the possibility of starting Ryan Zimmerman in left field Monday, but it's a good thing he didn't.

Bryce Harper swatted a solo home run as the Giants fell to the Nationals in Game 1 of the NLDS on Friday in Washington.

The Nationals offense had been kept at bay through the first six innings before Harper tagged Hunter Strickland for a solo shot in the seventh. He also singled in the contest, finishing the afternoon 2-for-4, collecting a third of the team's six total hits. Harper struggled in his first exposure to the postseason in 2012, going 3-for-23 (.130) with eight strikeouts against the Cardinals in the NLDS, but the early returns this year look far more encouraging.

Bryce Harper had two hits in his final game of the regular season against the Marlins Sunday.

Harper doubled off Marlins starter Henderson Alvarez among his two hits before being removed. The two hits raised his line to .273/.344/.423. Harper ends the year with 13 homers and 32 RBI in 100 games in a disappointing, injury-riddled 2014 season.

Bryce Harper is not in the Nationals starting lineup on Saturday.

It's just a routine day off for Harper. Ryan Zimmerman will make his return to the lineup and start in left field while Jayson Werth covers right. The 21-year-old outfielder is hitting .271/.340/.428 with 13 homers and 32 RBI in his 93 games on the year.
Sep 20 - 3:24 PM

Bryce Harper tallied three hits in four at-bats on Thursday as the Nationals beat the Marlins.

Harper has his average up to .274 with the effort, the highest it's been since early July, when he had just crossed the 100 plate appearance threshold. The 21-year-old has a respectable .274/.343/.433 slash line with 13 home runs and 32 RBI on the season.

Bryce Harper is not in the Nationals' lineup Wednesday.

As is customary the day after clinching a division title, the Nats are rolling out a "B" squad Wednesday, as not a single everyday player is in the lineup. With the club also starting Blake Treinen instead of Gio Gonzalez, it should be pickins for Alex Wood.
Sep 17 - 3:42 PM

Bryce Harper (flu) is in Tuesday's lineup against the Braves.

Harper left Monday's game with lightheadedness as a result of the flu, but it's not a big deal. He'll bat sixth Tuesday against Aaron Harang as the Nationals attempt to punch their ticket to the postseason.
Sep 16 - 3:23 PM

Bryce Harper is dealing with the flu.

The flu bug is being passed around the Nationals' clubhouse and apparently caught Harper. It's why he was lightheaded, which forced him from Monday's game. Consider him day-to-day.
Sep 15 - 11:11 PM

Bryce Harper left Monday's game versus the Braves due to lightheadedness.

It's not clear at this point what brought about the lightheadedness, but the Nationals should provide more on Harper's status after the game. He struck out in his lone at-bat before exiting.
Sep 15 - 8:19 PM

Bryce Harper left Monday's game against the Braves with an apparent injury.

Harper didn't suffer an obvious injury at any point, but Nate Schierholtz pinch-hit for him in the fourth inning. The Nationals will update the outfielder's status shortly.
Sep 15 - 8:05 PM

Bryce Harper is not in the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

He's getting a breather versus southpaw Cole Hamels. Scott Hairston, who is batting .391/.440/.826 with five homers over 50 plate appearances in his career against Hamels, is in left field in Harper's place. Wilson Ramos is also sitting out, as Jose Lobaton is catching Gio Gonzalez.
Sep 7 - 11:36 AM

Bryce Harper went 3-for-4 with two solo home runs in Sunday's loss to the Mariners.

Harper had three of the Nationals' six hits, with both his homers coming off Mariners starter Hisashi Iwakuma. Harper had a rough July after returning from a thumb injury, but the outfielder hit .279 with seven homers and 15 RBI in August. He should carry that strong production over into the season's final month.
Aug 31 - 8:22 PM

Bryce Harper went 3-for-4 with a solo home run as the Nationals earned a victory against the Mariners on Friday.

Harper's eighth inning solo home run off of Joe Beimel was one of six the Nationals slugged on the evening, and the eighth of the outfielder's season. He has, at times, appeared locked in lately, but he entered the night hitless in his previous nine plate appearances. He's slashing .263/.338/.401 with 26 RBI.
Aug 30 - 1:22 AM

Bryce Harper is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Phillies.

He's presumably getting a day off. Scott Hairston will make the start in left field against southpaw Cole Hamels.
