Description: LOS ANGELES -- Bryce Harper left the Washington Nationals' game against the Los Angeles Dodgers in the fifth inning after the star ran full-on into the scoreboard in right field at Dodger Stadium on Monday night.
Harper was trying to make a play on a ball hit by A.J. Ellis when he smacked face-first into the scoreboard. The impact sent his cap flying as he bounced off the wall and crumpled to the ground. Center fielder Denard Span had to come in to field the ball.
Harper rolled onto his back and eventually got up under his own power. Streaks of blood were evident on his neck as he walked off the field. The Nationals went on to win 6-2.
He received 11 stitches in his chin and jammed his shoulder, but didn't sustain a concussion. Nationals manager Davey Johnson said that X-rays were taken on the shoulder for precaution, according to the Washington Post, which also reported Harper has a bruised neck and knee and might miss one or two games.
"Bryce is going to be all right," Johnson told reporters. - ESPN
