Nats’ Harper Starts Brawl After Getting Plunked – Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper charged San Francisco Giants reliever Hunter Strickland in the eighth inning of the teams’ game on Monday, leading to a bench-clearing brawl between the two clubs. Strickland plunked Harper in the hip with a 98 mph fastball. Harper then gestured at Strickland with his bat, strode to the mound, threw his helmet at the Giants pitcher and the two exchanged blows as benches cleared. The 6-foot-4, 220-pound right-hander had to be carried off the field by several of his San Francisco teammates to keep him away from the melee.
