WASHINGTON — Bryce Harper left Saturday’s game against the Giants with an apparent leg injury after slipping on first base while running out an infield grounder in the first inning.

The Nationals will know more about the severity of the injury Sunday morning, after receiving Harper’s MRI results, manager Dusty Baker said after the game.

“We just ask for prayers that it’s not serious,” Baker said.

Edwin Jackson, who earned the win with a 3-1 victory, said it was good to see Harper up and “walking around” in the clubhouse after the game.

Harper, after tumbling to the dirt, immediately reached for his left knee and had to be carried off the field.

The game was originally scheduled for 6:30, but after an extended rain delay, began shortly after 10 p.m. with rain still falling.

As of this writing, there has been no update on Harper’s condition.
