Harper Comes Back with a Bang

Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper homered in his first at-bat Monday night against Milwaukee, hours after coming off the disabled list.

Harper missed 31 games with bursitis, diagnosed after he reinjured the left knee several times after his collision with the Dodger Stadium fence on May 13.

The Las Vegas High School star’s efforts helped the team to a 10-5 victory over the Brewers. The Nationals hope to repeat their performance when they face the Brewers again Tuesday at 7 p.m. eastern.
