Bryce Harper Remains in NLDS Game 4 vs. Braves After Collision with Matt Olson
CBS Philadelphia, PA It appeared that Bryce Harper had sustained a right elbow injury at the top of the eighth inning on Thursday night, but he continued to play in Game 4 of the National League Division Series.
Harper was running a ground ball to first base when he was collided with by Atlanta Braves first baseman Matt Olson.
Holding his right blow, Harper hobbled away from the bag in agony after recording the out after he collected the ball from second baseman Bryson Stott.
After the third out, Harper headed down the tunnel but finally came back to the bench.
Harper had Tommy John surgery on his right elbow last year in order to fix a damaged ulnar collateral ligament.
After the procedure, Harper recovered remarkably quickly and was back with the Phillies in May of 2023.
The Braves were defeated 3-1 thanks to Harper's 1 for 2 performance and two draws. Three home runs were hit by him in the series, two of which came in Game 3 after Harper's Game 2 base-running error was allegedly made fun of by Braves shortstop Orlando Arcia.
At Citizens Bank Park on Monday night, the first game of the NLCS between the Arizona Diamondbacks will get underway.
