Harper homers in return, Nats rout Brewers 10-5

Posted:

 

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Bryce Harper homered on his first swing since coming off the disabled list and his Washington Nationals teammates quickly joined in, beating the slumping Milwaukee Brewers 10-5 on Monday night.
   After missing 31 games with bursitis in his left knee -- the most lingering fallout from his collision with the Dodger Stadium wall -- Harper energized the Nationals and sparked their second rout in two 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.
   Jayson Werth had five RBIs, and even pitcher Jordan Zimmermann was an 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.
