Harper shows off glove in first start in center
LOS ANGELES -- Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper was impressive in his second Major League game, a 2-0 loss to the Dodgers on Sunday afternoon.

Harper went 1-for-3 with a walk, and made a great catch in the fourth inning off the bat of Juan Uribe. On the first pitch from Gio Gonzalez, Uribe swung and hit the ball to deep right-center field. Harper ran back and hit the wall hard after making the catch.

Harper then threw to first to try to double up Andre Ethier, to no avail. But after making the throw, Harper was shaken up and fell down to the ground. He was OK and remained in the game.

"At a zero-zero ballgame, in that situation you want to catch everything," Harper said. "I cramped up after I landed. That was the only thing that bothered me. It's better than running into the walls in Syracuse."
