(Up above: Scott Hairston with the bases loaded and one out in the 8th.) "It's tough. It's a stab in the heart. We've got to win these games. We had opportunities. We didn't capitalize on them. We had the right guys up there. We could've broken the game open when Hairston was hitting (with the bases loaded in the top of the eighth). We're just not...

Doc Settles Down After Rough First, But Phillies Fall

Harper: ‘If I was hurting, I’d come out of the game’

Anybody watching Bryce Harper during Monday night’s 3-2 loss to the Phillies could tell the Nationals outfielder was less than 100 percent healthy.
