However, after the game, it was revealed Harper sustained an injury to his right leg as he slid awkwardly into second base on the double.

Harper, who went 2 for 5 with one RBI, downplayed the issue.

"I just felt a cramp," Harper said after the game, per MLB.com. "I just got done working out, so I haven't even gotten treatment yet. But, pretty much just a cramp."
