Bryce Harper left in pain Saturday.

According to the Washington Post's Jorge Castillo, Harper hurt his knee when he lunged for first base trying to beat out a ground ball.

The Friday game between the San Francisco Giants and Washington Nationals was rained out after a steady rain in the nation's capital most of the evening.

It could be the returning striker who leads the way to the Premier League or Champions League in the second half of this season. Mata was one of United's top performers last season , scoring 10 goals and providing six assists in 42 league and cup outings.

Any significant injury to Harper could be devastating to the Nationals lineup, even with plenty of other talented players on the roster. Harper remained on the ground for an extended period of time. Hitting coach Rick Schu and trainer Paul Lessard then helped him off the field. Saturday's game was delayed three hours with more inclement weather and the rain conditions came into play right away. But, when Harper hit first base, his left leg slipped on the bag, causing his knee to shoot straight back.

Because of a bevy of injuries, the Nationals have used 12 outfielders this season. Major League Baseball, not the Nationals, decided if and when the game would be played because the Giants don't return to Washington this season.
