Bryce Harper's status for the second game of a doubleheader Saturday night is in question after the Washington Nationals' outfielder fouled a ball off his left ankle in the first inning Saturday afternoon and was forced to leave the game.

Andrelton Simmons gave Atlanta a chance. Michael Morse had a quick answer for Washington. Morse had four hits, including the go-ahead homer in the eighth inning after Washington had blown a four-run lead, and the Nationals beat the Braves 5-4 on Friday night.
