    the Dodger Stadium wall, enough for manager Davey Johnson to consider resting
    the Washington Nationals outfielder for a few games. Harper aggravated his sore
    left knee three times in Sundays 6-1 win over the Philadelphia Phillies, twice
    with head-first slides in the first inning. He slid into second on an infield
    hit-and-error, then hit the dirt again with a steal of third. For good measure,
    he then fouled a pitch off the knee in the third inning. He was limping
    throughout the game and was removed for a pinch runner after drawing a walk in
    the seventh. "If hed quit head-first sliding, hed be a lot better off," Johnson
    said. "Hell probably be down a few days. I dont know if theres fluid on the knee
    or what, but he was certainly gimpy." Harper, however, quickly answered "no"
    when asked if he expected to miss any playing time. "It probably wont get better
    until the off-season," he said. "Ive just got to deal with the pain. ... I could
    rest it for four days and feel better and I could go out there and slide and
    bang it up again -- and back to square one." Harper also differed with the
    manager on whether it would do any good to stop sliding head-first, saying the
    knee feels pressure either way. "If I slid feet-first right now, my knee might
    pop and not be good," Harper said. Harper has already missed three games because
    of the knee thats been bothersome since he ran into the wall in a game against
    the Los Angeles Dodgers on May 13, a collision that also left him with a gash in
    the chin that required 11 stitches. Harper is hitting .287 with 12 home runs and
    23 RBIs. Johnson also announced that left-hander Ross Detwiler will miss a
    second start and go on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained oblique
    muscle. Johnson said the muscle is still tight, so Detwiler will skip Tuesdays
    scheduled start. His placement on the DL will be retroactive in the hopes that
    he can return to the rotation next Sunday. Left-hander Xavier Cedeno will be
    recalled from Triple-A Syracuse. Johnson said he hasnt decided who will start
    Tuesday. Adidas Ultra Boost Clearance

    Brian Snitker described Tyrell Jenkins fourth-inning collapse as a rookies
    growing pains.Even so, it was difficult for the interim manager and Braves fans
    to watch.Jenkins was impressive for three innings before giving up eight runs in
    the fourth, and Atlantas late comeback fell short in an 11-9 loss to the
    Washington Nationals on Saturday night.Jenkins (2-4) gave up nine runs while
    lasting only 3 1/3 innings.Unfortunately, it just got out of hand, Jenkins said.
    It was tough. ... Going into the fourth it just kind of unraveled.The Braves led
    3-1 after three innings, and Jenkins retired the Nationals in order in the
    third.I thought the way the first three innings went the kid was going to go
    seven innings, Snitker said. His stuff was crisp, his location was good, and
    then his stuff wasnt so good, location wasnt so good. It kind of completely
    turned upside down pretty much.Its just part of a young pitchers plight trying
    to get to where they want to go.Daniel Murphy and Trea Turner hit homers in
    Washingtons big fourth inning. Ryan Zimmerman also homered among his three hits
    in his return from the disabled list.Washington set a Nationals record with nine
    hits in the inning, including eight straight, and had 17 hits in the game.Max
    Scherzer (13-7) allowed four runs and six hits in 6 1/3 innings, regrouping
    after giving up three runs in the second.Mark Melancon gave up a two-run single
    to Chase dArnaud, cutting the lead to two, before recording the final out for
    his 36th save.Adonis Garcia had a two-run double in Atlantas three-run second.
    Jeff Francoeur drove in a run with a pinch-hit, bases-loaded single off Matt
    Belisle in the eighth. Koda Glover gave up three runs in the ninth before giving
    way to Melancon.Nationals manager Dusty Baker applauded the spirit the
    last-place Braves showed with their five runs in the last two innings.Youve got
    to give those guys over there credit, Baker saiid.dddddddddddd. They dont quit.
    They keep fighting and fighting. ... Most teams if they were where they are now,
    this time of year, their spirit would be broken. Theyve got a lot of spirit over
    there.The first-place Nationals have won the first three games of this series
    and are 11-1 against the Braves this season.Murphy led off the fourth with his
    23rd homer, caught by a fan wearing a red Bryce Harper jersey on the first row
    of the right-field seats. Turner added a three-run homer off Jenkins.Even
    Scherzer joined the fun with a run-scoring single in the fourth.Scherzer beat
    out an infield hit in the seventh to drive in another run.Anthony Rendon had
    four hits and scored three runs.DANSBYS DAY OFFBraves rookie shortstop Dansby
    Swanson, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 draft, had his first break from the
    starting lineup since being called up on Wednesday.Just pick and choose, really,
    Snitker said of the decision. He doesnt need to go out there every day. Its
    going to be a big enough acclimation to the major leagues.BIGGER INNINGThe nine
    hits in the fourth were the most for the Nationals/Expos franchise since
    Montreal had 13 hits and scored 13 runs in the sixth inning of a 19-3 win over
    San Francisco on May 7, 1997.TRAINERS ROOMThe Nationals also reinstated catcher
    Jose Lobaton from the DL. He Lobaton has been out since July 20 with left elbow
    tendinitis. Right-hander A.J. Cole and catcher Pedro Severino were optioned to
    Triple-A Syracuse.UP NEXTNationals: LHP Gio Gonzalez will look for his 100th
    career win in the finale of the four-game series. Gonzalez threw six scoreless
    innings but received no decision in his only other start of the season against
    Atlanta, a 2-1 Nationals win on April 12.Braves: Joel De La Cruz (0-6) will make
    his first start against Washington. ' ' '
