    WASHINGTON -- Wilson Ramos jumped to catch a relay throw on a play at the plate that appeared pretty harmless. Only this time, his right foot hit the dirt and he crumpled to the ground, clutching his right knee.The All-Star catcher writhed in pain and was helped off the field during the Washington Nationals 14-4 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday night. The injury could be another major blow to the NL East champions, already expected to be without ailing pitcher Stephen Strasburg in the Division Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.Nationals manager Dusty Baker said Ramos would have an MRI on Tuesday to determine the extent of the damage. But the damage to the teams World Series hopes might already have been done.Theres nothing you can do about it, Baker said. Youve got to play and nobody feels sorry for you, so were not going to feel sorry for ourselves.It was the same knee Ramos injured badly during the 2012 season, when he tore his ACL and medial collateral ligament. Ramos, who can become a free agent after the season, is hitting .307 with 22 home runs and 80 RBI.Hes a silent leader, said starter Tanner Roark (15-10), who took the loss after allowing five runs and four hits in four innings. He goes out there and does it with his glove and behind the dish and his bat.The injury happened on Yasmany Tomas RBI double in the sixth when first baseman Ryan Zimmerman relayed home. Teammates immediately knew something was wrong with Ramos, who usually stays in the game after taking foul balls off just about every part of his body.Tough moment, said Roark, who is expected to follow Max Scherzer in Washingtons playoff rotation. Something just gave out and he pointed right to his knee.Ramos called for medical attention and couldnt walk off under his own power. Baker and players hoped for the best, but its clear they immediately feared the worst.You hate (for) it to happen this late, right before the playoffs, but our next step is try to figure out a way to play without Wilson, Baker said. Ive been mixing and matching this year and most of my life. Therefore, its another obstacle and Ive just got to try to go back to the drawing board and figure out something.The Nationals have two other catchers on their September roster in Pedro Severino and Jose Lobaton. But they dont have someone who can replace Ramos power and presence in the middle of the lineup.Washington should have reigning NL MVP Bryce Harper back by the playoffs, if not sooner, after Baker said X-rays came back negative on the sluggers left thumb. Baker said Harper could be back within a few days, and second baseman Daniel Murphy is expected to be in the lineup for Game 1 against the Dodgers on Oct. 7 after being shut down with a strained glute.Nationals pitchers allowed a season-high five home runs -- two to Jean Segura, a three-run shot to Tomas and one each to Mitch Haniger and Jake Lamb.Washington is one game up on the Dodgers for home-field advantage in the NLDS.BLAME THE RAINIncluding a 20-minute rain delay that started one pitch in, the top of the sixth inning took almost an hour to play. The Diamondbacks sent 11 hitters to the plate, scoring five runs on six hits with an error sprinkled in for good measure.TOMAS NIGHTTomas, a Cuban countryman of late Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez, made a running catch at the wall in the second inning and had a big night at the plate. Tomas was 2 for 5 with five RBI, including his 30th home run of the season.After Fernandezs death in a boating accident early Sunday at age 24, Tomas tweeted in Spanish calling Fernandez a friend and thanking him for the moments he provided in baseball. After the game he declined to talk about Fernandez.GOODWIN IN LOSSStarting in place of Harper, Nationals rookie outfielder Brian Goodwin hit his first major league triple and drove in two runs. With nothing but home-field advantage in the first round left to play for, Goodwin could see a lot of action the rest of the week.TRAINERS ROOMDiamondbacks: Manager Chip Hale said RHP Rubby De La Rosa will have a stem cell injection in his elbow Tuesday in an attempt to avoid a second Tommy John surgery.Nationals: LHP Sammy Solis was activated off the disabled list after missing more than a month with shoulder inflammation.UP NEXTScherzer (18-7, 2.82 ERA) continues his Cy Young Award campaign against Arizonas Matt Koch (1-1, 1.29), who will make his first major league start.

Cheap NHL Jerseys .ca. Kerry, Just watched the shootout in the Coyotes/Leafs game and I have to ask, why was the James van Riemsdyk goal allowed to count? All of the video replays we were shown on TV were inconclusive about whether the puck had entirely crossed the line or not. Glamorgan 280 (Bragg 98, Wallace 67*) and 16-1 require a further 261 to beat Worcestershire 163 (Hogan 4-44) and 393 (Clarke 98, Fell 65, Leach 65, Wagg 5-90)Scorecard Graham Waggs first five wicket haul of the season and a record-equalling performance by keeper Mark Wallace enabled Glamorgan to finally dismiss Worcestershire for 393 on day three of the Specsavers County Championship clash at New Road.But fine knocks from England Lions batsman Joe Clarke (98) and vice-captain Joe Leach (65 not out) enabled the promotion-chasing home side to set a 277 target although the pitch remains batsmen-friendly.Then Leach struck an early blow for the home side as Nick Selman was caught behind without a run on the board - his third successive duck as Glamorgan closed on 16 for 1Wagg finished with 5 for 90 from 33 overs of toil in the scorching heat while Wallace matched his own and Colin Metsons Glamorgan record of nine dismissals in a see-saw match.However the individual highlight of the day was teenager Lukas Carey pulling off one of the catches of the season to deny Clarke a fifth first class century of the campaign. Clarke pulled a delivery from Wagg which looked to be sailing over the square leg boundary for six. But Carey, 19, stuck out his right hand and held oonto the ball at full stretch on the edge of the rope to end Clarkes fine knock.ddddddddddddThe home side had resumed on 150-2 - and within two overs had lost two wickets as Tom Fell and Tom Kohler-Cadmore were dismissed. Fell had failed to add to his overnight 65 when he drove hard at Wagg and nicked through to Wallace. Kohler-Cadmore completed a pair when he pushed forward to Michael Hogan and was also caught behind.Worcestershire, who trailed by 117 runs on first innings, were then effectively 35 for 4 but Clarke and Ross Whiteley responded with a fifth wicket stand of 104 in 36.1 overs.Clarke looked in particularly fine form until Careys stunning catch and Whiteley was dismissed in bizarre fashion by Waggs next delivery. The left hander ducked under a Wagg delivery but left his bat upright periscope-style and the ball ballooned off it into the hands of Wallace. Ben Cox and Ed Barnard were both trapped lbw to Craig Meschede and Wagg who completed a five wicket haul.Leach and Jack Shantry provided further resistance in a ninth wicket stand of 56 with the former going to his half century with a six over long-on off Owen Morgan.
