Bryce Harper Injures Hamstring in Phillies’ 7-4 Defeat to Marlins

Bryce Harper exited with a suspected hamstring injury after the Philadelphia Phillies’ 7-4 loss to the Miami Marlins on Thursday night, limping off the field following the final out. Hustling down the line in an attempt to beat out a grounder, Harper grabbed his left hamstring after crossing first base and made his way gingerly towards the dugout. He is scheduled for imaging on Friday.

Teammate Kyle Schwarber also suffered an injury, departing in the ninth inning due to left groin tightness following an awkward throw from the outfield. Normally a designated hitter, Schwarber started in left field for just the third time this season.

Harper, who had been elected by fans earlier in the day to start at first base for the National League in the upcoming All-Star Game, expressed uncertainty about his injury, remarking, “I never felt anything like this before. It hurts.”

Despite Harper’s early exit, the Marlins surged late, with Jake Burger’s go-ahead solo homer in the eighth inning off Jeff Hoffman (3-1) breaking a 4-all tie. Bryan De La Cruz’s three-run double in the seventh had earlier knotted the score at 3, and Anthony Bender (3-2) earned the win in relief.

The series continues with Marlins right-hander Kyle Turner (0-0, 4.50 ERA) facing Phillies left-hander Cristopher Sánchez (5-3, 2.67 ERA) on Friday.
