Nats' Harper, Strasburg Making History

Washington Post

On Friday night, immediately after grounding out to Joey Votto in the seventh inning of the Washington Nationals' victory over the Cincinnati Reds, Bryce Harper threw down his bat in anger. In an almost comical scenario, the bat bounced off the dugout wall and struck Harper on his forehead, just above his left eye, requiring 10 stitches.

Maybe it was a good thing.
