Harper making strides as Nationals host Phillies

WASHINGTON -- Bryce Harper made some strides at the plate Thursday night just as the Washington Nationals prepare to welcome the division-rival Philadelphia Phillies to town for a weekend series.

Moved back to the leadoff spot by manager Dave Martinez, Harper walked twice and had a sacrifice fly and a double in four plate appearances during a 4-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles. Harper doubled in the eighth inning of a tie game and came in on Juan Soto's two-run double and the Nationals took two of three from the Orioles.

"I was able to see a lot of pitches tonight," Harper told the Washington Times after the Nationals (40-33) improved to 9-1 with him in the leadoff spot.
