lineup for Friday nights
WASHINGTON -- Nationals star Bryce Harper was back in the starting lineup for Friday nights matchup against Miami after the outfielder sat out the previous four days with a left thumb injury.Rain fell throughout Friday and was expected to linger as the NL East champions began their final series of the regular season.Washington began the day two games ahead of the Los Angeles Dodgers for home-field advantage in their upcoming matchup in the Division Series.Nationals manager Dusty Baker has given Harper additional time to heal after the reigning NL MVP jammed his thumb on a slide Sunday at Pittsburgh.If a guy tells me hes ready, if I have a luxury, I like to give them one more day off, Baker said. I just noticed that a lot of guys say theyre ready, and you bring them back and theyre really not ready. I would prefer that you be champing at the bit to get back (instead) of a person to just say that youre ready.Baker also took precaution with Harper because of the wet conditions in the Washington area this week.Harper is batting .244 with 24 home runs and 95 RBI.
