Alex Pavlovic After three hours Nationals finally admit that game with Giants is postponed

Nationals' general manager Mike Rizzo told reporters that he doesn't believe the injury is season-ending, but doesn't have a clear timetable in mind for Harper's recovery just yet.

Bryce Harper does not have any ligament or tendon damage in his injured left knee, but the Washington Nationals star outfielder will be out indefinitely because of a significant bone bruise. Rizzo said the conditions, which included steady rain during the play "aided" in the injury but didn't blame Major League Baseball for going ahead with the game.

Harper sustained the injury in the first inning while rounding first base.

Harper was unable to put weight on his leg and was carried off the field by his hitting coach and the team trainer. "I'm very optimistic that he'll be at least fine shortly", Baker said.

The Nationals and Giants game had already been delayed for several hours due to rain, so Nationals fans were already a little annoyed.

Manager Dusty Baker spoke this week about the importance of new players fitting well into the Washington Nationals' clubhouse in the middle of the season.

Jackson allowed just one run in six innings, Adam Lind was 3 for 3 with an RBI and Ryan Zimmerman had two hits and drove in a run for Washington.

The Giants recalled utilityman Orlando Calixte to be their extra man. Games start at 10:05 a.m. PDT and 4:05 p.m. PDT.

"Today was definitely one of those, dig-deep-and-see-what-you-made-of days", Jackson said.

Washington took three of four in the series and leads second-place Miami by 15 games in the NL East. Samardzija has won three in a row after a 6-3 win versus the Arizona Diamondbacks with all three runs plated over 6.1 frames.
