    Nationals plan to activate Bryce Harper on Monday

    The Nationals are planning to activate Bryce Harper from the 10-day disabled list on Monday, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports. Janes adds that Harper has been taking his knee injury on a day-to-day basis, so if he experiences pain ahead of tomorrow’s series opener in Philadelphia, then the Nationals won’t activate him. Harper, 24, suffered a knee injury running out a grounder last month against the Giants. The Nationals hope to get him into some game action before the end of the regular season just so he can get acclimated in time for the playoffs. When Harper returns, he’ll look to improve on his .326/.419/.614 slash line with 29 home runs, 87 RBI, and 92 runs scored in 472 plate

    Murphy's homer propels Nats over Mets, 4-3, in 10 innings

    1) Noah Syndergaard needed five pitches to complete his lone inning of work in his first Major League appearance since partially tearing his right lat muscle on April 30. The right-hander retired Trea Turner on a flyout and allowed a single to Jayson Werth before inducing an inning-ending double play from Daniel Murphy. 2) Jacob Rhame allowed a go-ahead solo homer to Daniel Murphy in the 10th inning, his ninth home run and 35th RBI in 37 career games against the Mets since joining the Nationals after the 2015 season. 3) Matt Harvey took over for Syndergaard in the second and fired two scoreless frames before allowing a two-run homer to Adam Lind in the fourth and a solo shot to Matt Wieters in the fifth.

    MLB teams have some fun with rookie dress-up

    SN Staff There's one week left in baseball's regular season, which means the annual ritual of rookie dress-up is upon us. Costumes were all the rage on Sunday, as teams headed to the destination of their next series. The Tampa Bay Rays' rookies dressed up as the club's DJ Kitty mascot. The Atlanta Braves' youngsters were Mario Kart characters. And the first-year Minnesota Twins players had a whole mishmash of looks going on. While all of the aforementioned efforts are admirable, it's hard for any of those teams to beat the Washington Nationals. The Nats, rookies included, donned "Game of Thrones" costumes for their final road trip of the regular season -- and it was pretty darn incredible. The
