Bryce Harper chose a good time for his first hit. The Nats slugger's 10th inning single - his only knock of the night - gave his team a 6-5 win over the Reds. The hit, combined with five scoreless innings from the beleaguered Washington bullpen, helped the Nationals keep their 9.5-game cushion over second-place Atlanta. It's Harper's third walk-off hit this season, tied for most in MLB.
