• Nats' closer calls out Harper's OF positioning

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated May 22, 2013
    Washington Nationals closer Rafael Soriano questioned Bryce Harper's defensive positioning on Tuesday, saying the star right fielder should have been in a better position to make a game-saving catch against the San Francisco Giants. Following Harper's double, the Giants elected to intentionally walk Ryan Zimmerman to face Desmond. A day after he blew his third save of the year and agreed that Harper misplayed a fly ball, allowing the Giants to tie the game en route to a 4-2 win, Soriano pitched a 1-2-3 10th to wrap up the road trip. Soriano, who has blown three saves in his first season with the Nationals, backtracked off those comments Wednesday, saying he thought his conversation with USA Today Sports was off the record.
