Harper leaves game bloody after running into wall
MAY 13, 2013 9:26p ET
The right fielder took a bad route on a fly ball hit by Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis in the bottom of the fifth inning and paid for it, going face first into the right field wall. And while Harper didn't come up with the catch, he did come up with a bloodied neck that was rather alarming.
Actually, Harper's bleeding from his neck. Had no idea he was running into fence.— Mark Zuckerman (@ZuckermanCSN) May 14, 2013
Almost like a wide receiver turned around on a throw, Harper changed directions, looked like he wanted to slow up and then ran out of real estate, banging hard into the wall and crumbling to the warning track, shades of Aaron Rowand in 2006.
Harper was down in obvious pain before being attended to by Nationals personnel. As he left the game, he did so with a noticeable trace of blood around his neck.
