Harper exited the game after being hit. On his next pitch, Cabrera hit Didi Gregorius in the ribs. Phillies manager Joe Girardi came out to protest the entire situation and got ejected in this funny video.
Harper provided a video update for his fans after the game.
The biggest W tonight.

“Everything looks good. Everything came back good. CT (scan), all that kind of stuff. Face is still there! We’re all good!” Harper said.
Given the situation, things could have turned out a lot worse. The Phillies and Cardinals finish their four-game series on Thursday. If Harper is able to play in that game, that would be pretty incredible.
