    WASHINGTON -- On his first swing back from a knee injury, Bryce Harper hit a curtain-call home run. Air Max 95 Sale Cheap . Welcome back, slugger. "Typical Bryce right there, hes all about the drama," teammate Jayson Werth said. "He didnt disappoint us, I guess." Harpers first-inning solo shot Monday night was the sparkplug for the Washington Nationals in a 10-5 pounding of the slumping Milwaukee Brewers. It was the 20-year-old Harpers only hit of the night, but the domino effect was real. Werth, unhappily bumped to second in the lineup because of Harpers return, got five RBIs. Starting pitcher Jordan Zimmerman was an unexpected offensive juggernaut with a team-high three hits, including a double to start a five-run third inning and a single to open a two-run fourth. Put it all together and the Nationals had their second runaway win in as many days. After toying with .500 for the entire month of June, Washington moved two games above the break-even mark for the first time since late May. "Its kind of contagious. Everybody knows weve got some work to do," Washington manager Davey Johnson said. "Lets get down to business. Lets get serious." Harper missed 31 games with bursitis in his left knee -- the most lingering fallout from his collision with the Dodger Stadium wall -- and was activated from the 15-day disabled list before the game. Batting third and playing left field, he launched the second pitch he saw, a fastball from Yovani Gallardo (6-8), into the visitors bullpen beyond left field for an opposite-field homer. Harper raised his right arm and pointed to the fans as he finished his familiar sprint around the bases. After lots of high-fives in the dugout, he returned to the top of the steps and gave a thumbs-up curtain call. "I felt like I was back on opening day," said Harper, who homered in his first two at-bats of the season. "I was trying to get something I could drive. I got a pitch I could handle a little bit and put it where I wanted to." The solo shot was Harpers 13th homer of the season and 24th RBI. He hurt his knee in the mishap in Los Angeles on May 13 and reinjured it several times over the following two weeks before going on the disabled list. He went 4 for 11 in minor league rehab games last week. He finished 1 for 4 with a walk on Monday. He slid hard into second base on a double play in the sixth inning, showing no signs of being gimpy in his knee. The Nationals improved to 26-19 when Harper plays; they are 16-21 when he doesnt. He and the teammates made life easy for Zimmermann (12-3), who had an 8-0 lead at one point and pitched six innings. He allowed four runs and tied unbeaten Max Scherzer of the Detroit Tigers for the major league lead in wins. Zimmermann said his night at the plate was better than his night on the mound. He joked about the size of his bat, initially claiming it was 39 inches instead of 34. "I pitch all right," Zimmerman said. "But definitely three hits is awesome." Werths mood, by contrast, was nowhere near jovial, especially for a player with his best RBI game since 2009. He kept reporters waiting for nearly an hour after the game and proclaimed himself "just a grunt out here playing ball." "I dont necessarily like hitting second," Werth said. "But if thats the best for our team, Ive said it before: Last year when I led off, it wasnt personally the best fit for me, but it was the best for our team and thats why I felt like it should have happened. And the same goes for me hitting second now." The Nationals, perhaps finally finding their stride after a middling first half of the season, have won five of seven to pull within six games of the first-place Atlanta Braves in the NL East. Washington scored a season-high 13 runs on Sunday against the New York Mets. Meanwhile, the Brewers, missing injured slugger Ryan Braun, have lost six straight and are 32-49 at the midpoint of their season. Gallardo struggled for the second straight start. With the Brewers bullpen spent after Sundays 14-inning loss to Pittsburgh, the right-hander was left to fend for himself until he was pulled in the fourth inning. He allowed eight runs, and his ERA rose from 4.20 to 4.78. "You dont expect to see it from Yovani because hes been so consistent through his career, but hes at a point right now where for some reason hes deep in counts to almost every batter," Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke said. "Were 3-2 and hes having to make a great pitch, and you cant survive if you keep doing that." NOTES: Johnson said LHP Ross Detwiler had a good bullpen session and is on pace to start Wednesday as scheduled. Detwiler had stiffness in his lower back after his last start. ... The Nationals optioned RHP Erik Davis to Triple-A Syracuse to make room for Harper. ... Brewers RHP Kyle Lohse will make his next start Wednesday on two days rest. Lohse started Sunday, but he went only 1 2-3 innings before a 2-hour rain delay. Air Max 95 Clearance . The Hall of Fame defenceman told Landsberg that he believes fighting still has a place in todays game, but thinks staged fighting needs be outlawed. Cheap Wholesale Air Max 95 . They had already blown a double-digit lead, fans were hitting the exits, and a long seven-game road trip waited at the end. http://www.wholesaleairmax95.com/ .Y. -- The Buffalo Sabres have placed centre Cody Hodgson on injured reserve and recalled two players from their AHL affiliate in Rochester. The day has finally arrived: the 2016 World Championship is about to begin. The sixth iteration of Leagues biggest tournament of the year will kick off Thursday at 4:00 p.m. PT (7:00 p.m. ET) with an opening ceremony at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, California. After that, well head straight into an inter-regional League Championship Series clash between European champion G2 Esports and Mid-Season Invitational finalist Counter Logic Gaming of North America.ESPN was lucky enough to sit down with two AD carry legends of the game, South Koreas Kang Cpt Jack Hyung-woo of Longzhu Gaming, 23, and Chinas retired Gao WeiXiao Xuecheng, 24, to get their thoughts on the tournament before the action starts in the Bay Area.[It] feels like most Koreans think this way: that from all the NA teams, [Team SoloMid] is the only team that has the potential of going to the finals, Cpt Jack said. TSM is the most prepared and has the best plays versus the other NA teams. feel like TSM has a great chance, great potential to go to the quarterfinals and semifinals, said Jack. And if they have a little bit of luck, also, theyll make it to the finals, so Ill be cheering for them. Id love to see all of NAs fans cheering for them and see what happens.For NA LCS, I didnt pay that much attention, but I still know about TSM, WeiXiao said. I think TSM is really strong with their AD carry and mid lane. Both of them have a really stable performance, and especially for the ADC, as Im an AD carry myself, Im looking forward to seeing [Yiliang Doublelift Pengs] performance at Worlds.Although WeiXiao may not have been following the NA League Championship series closely, he certainly remembers the highlights. From his perspective, Cloud9 has a lot to live up to at Worlds as a team with international renown. CLG, on the other hand, shoulders a lighter burden of expectations because its roster has changed so much since 2015. On the topic of rosters, there are certain individuals in the NA scene that have caught both Cpt Jack and WeiXiaos attention. would pick [S?ren Bjergsen Bjerg] and [Jung Impact Eon-yeong], Cpt Jack said when asked which North American players he preferred. But Impact is a Korean so maybe [that] cancels it out. Bjergsen is the number one of all of NA. consider him as the [Lee Faker Sang-hyeok] of [North America].Doublelift, Ive played with him before and I think hes a really, really strong player to play against, WeiXiao said. After I retired, Doublelift is still playing, and is still keeping his performance to a high level. I really respect that and think that he is overpowered. Its really hard for players to keep up their skill level for a long time.The topic then turned to which teams would show well at Worlds overall, in particular non-South Korean teams, since South Korea tends to dominate the competition. Cpt Jack was bullish on Chinas Edward Gaming and Taiwans Flash Wolves; WeiXiao agreed on EDG, especially given the teams group draw. Air Max 95 Sale Outlet. This led to a discussion on Chinas chances in general.For [Royal Never Give Up] I think they are a pretty new team with some new players they combined together, but I think the individual skill of the RNG players is good, said WeiXiao. But they are really weak at overall strategy, so if they have a better overall strategy, theyll be [strong]. The only thing about [them] is their group is pretty difficult.And lastly for I May, good luck! They are so new from the [LoL Secondary Pro League] straight to [LoL Pro League] and now straight to Worlds, they dont have lots of international experience and their group is too strong.On the topic of the best AD carries in the professional scene, although they had slightly different top picks, they both held Edward Gamings ace in the bottom lane in high regard. Their other picks ranged from players in South Korea to Europe to China once more. think [Kim Deft Hyuk-kyu] has the most surprising elements of being an AD carry, Jack said.The first one is [Kim PraY Jong-in], answered Weixiao on which AD carries he respected the most, excluding the already-praised Doublelift. [Weve] been pro players during the same period of time before, and then Pray disappeared for a time and then came back again to win and kill all the other teams. Hes on a really great team now, and I think that is really great.Second one is Deft, WeiXiao continued. He wasnt doing so great in [2015] but hes improved a lot [this year] and has worked hard with [EDG] a lot. He has good results this season and went straight to Worlds. There is also [Jian Uzi Zi-Hao] -- everyone knows him. Hes really young, really good skills, and thats it. He is a good player. Lastly, its [Konstantinos FORG1VEN Tzortziou] from Europe. I met him in Poland for [Intel Extreme Masters] and [scrimmaged] against him. He is a really skilled player with lots of mechanics.We put the two players on the spot to give their top four predictions for the entire competition. Cpt Jack and WeiXiao both agreed on the ROX Tigers, SK Telecom T1 and EDG as the top three, but had some difficulty deciding on a fourth-best contender.I feel like the fourth team is tricky. I [pick] Flash Wolves, but I dont think Samsung [yet] because they have to prove themselves, Jack said.Flash Wolves, G2, and RNG have a really big opportunity to get into the fourth position. Thats just my personal impression, echoed WeiXiao.And Jack and Weixiaos Summoners Cup finals prediction?ROX Tigers [versus] EDG. Whichever team has the most Koreans will win, Jack laughed.EDG vs. either SKT or the Tigers, replied Weixiao. The winner? EDG, chuckled Weixiao, cheekily siding with his home country to bring back the world championship. Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Camo China NFL Jerseys Black China NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Gear Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Outlet China Womens NFL Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Hoodies Wholesale Jerseys From China ' ' '
