  • Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper suffers ugly-looking knee injury

It's been more than a month since manager Bruce Bochy addressed Morse's health on the record, and he said he hoped that Morse might be able to return to the club in September.

Manager Dusty Baker said after the game that everybody had the same reaction. Jackson was charged with the loss in his last start as the Nationals fell 7-4 to the Cubs in Chicago on Saturday.

There has been no update on Harper's injury.

Jackson (3-2) gave up five hits before Brandon Kintzler took over and pitched a scoreless seventh.

The Nationals now lead the Giants 2-1 in the bottom of the third inning.

Virginia was in the news Saturday for the racial unrest that took place. Forget the part where the Nationals haven't even won a postseason series since 1981, when they were the Expos, and how losing Harper was going to make that a much more hard hill to climb. He struck out five batters, walked one and surrendered five base hits, including a solo home run by second baseman Joe Panik in the first inning. With a split doubleheader looming Sunday, the last thing these teams wanted was to start Saturday's game and lose both starting pitchers to a lengthy delay after two or three innings. Fellow outfielder Michael Taylor (right oblique strain) was activated from the 10-day disabled list in a corresponding move and will assume Harper's spot on the active roster for the time being.

Giants players were already in street clothes talking to family and friends and walking toward the team buses before the game was announced as postponed. Harper has been relatively healthy this season and missed just three days with mild groin soreness back in May. This season, with the Giants off in a ditch, Baker is set to pass him once more. Harper is hitting.326 with 29 home runs and 87 RBIs as the most fearsome hitter in the league.

There's a good chance Baker passes Bochy in this series.

"I think (starter Jeff Samardzija) said he tried to extend the knee a little bit and try to catch the corner of the bag, and I think he might've slipped on the top", Jones said.
