SAN DIEGO -- Bryce Harper is back in the Washington Nationals' lineup three nights after running full-on into the scoreboard in right field at Dodger Stadium.

The violent collision left the 20-year-old slugger with 11 stitches in his chin and a sore body.

He says he feels "a little bit better" but that whole left side of his body is still sore.

Harper is playing left field and batting third against the San Diego Padres.
