Washington Nationals center fielder Bryce Harper was not in the lineup for the second game of a doubleheader Saturday against the visiting Atlanta Braves after suffering a bruised ankle early in the first game. Harper fouled a Ben Sheets pitch off his left foot while attempting to bunt in the first inning. He was examined by the Nationals training staff and looked at by manager Davey Johnson before resuming the at-bat. He struck out swinging on the next pitch. Harper went back to center field for the second inning, but Roger Bernadina took his place in the third. The 19-year-old has struggled of late as he is 4 for his last 20 with one run and one RBI. He is hitting .267 with eight home runs and 26 RBI in 72 games this season.
