Bryce Harper's strong glove, late double help Nats end slide with 9th-inning rally
Bryce Harperhad a hand in everything for theWashington Nationals.
Harper made a tumbling barehanded catch in centerfield and then led off the ninth inning with a double to set the stage forIan Desmond's two-out game-ending home run that gave the Nationals a 5-4 victory over the visitingArizona Diamondbackson Wednesday night.
"He was born for these situations," Washington manager Davey Johnson said of Harper.
In the sixth inning, Harper fell down in the right-center gap while attempting to catch a fly ball offJason Kubel's bat. As he landed in the grass, Harper secured the ball in his ungloved right hand.
"I was wondering if anybody saw that," Harper said. "It went underneath my glove, and I caught it with my bare hand on the back side of it."
Harper, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 draft, also had his first multi-hit game with two doubles and a single from the No. 7 spot in the lineup. He scored his first career run in the fourth inning, knocking the ball out of the catcher's glove.
The Nationals snapped their own five-game losing streak and ended the three-game winning streak of the Diamondbacks.
"We needed it," Johnson said. "No doubt about it."
Henry Rodriguez(1-1) struck out two in the top of the ninth to earn the win.J.J. Putz(0-2) blew the save and took the loss. After Harper's leadoff double, Putz struck out the next two batters before Desmond's homer to left.
"It won't be the last time it happens to us this year," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. "We're playing good baseball. We just have to shake this one off and come back tomorrow."
Harper nearly homered in the fourth inning, settling for an RBI double off the top of the wall. The next batter hit a grounder to Arizona second basemanAaron Hill, who misplayed the ball. Although the ball didn't go far and he started the play at second base, Harper attempted to score.
Hill's throw beat Harper to the plate, but a sliding Harper knocked the ball from catcherMiguel Montero's glove to score his first major-league run.
