WASHINGTON (AP) - Bryce Harper showed why his manager put him in the No. 3 spot for his fifth career game.
The 19-year-old phenom hit a tiebreaking RBI double in the sixth inning, lifting the Washington Nationals to a 2-1 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday night.
Ross Detwiler (3-1) did his part as well. The left-hander allowed one run and three hits over 6 1-3 innings in his longest outing this season. He retired the first eight batters he faced and didn't allow a hit until the fifth inning.
Ian Kennedy (3-1) lost for the first time in 13 starts, snapping a personal nine-game win streak.
