Harper Gets 4 Hits To Win Trout Duel As Nationals Beat Angels, 4-3

ANAHEIM (AP) — Bryce Harper went 4 for 4 with a homer, and he tripled and scored on Ryan Zimmerman’s tiebreaking RBI single in the eighth inning of the Washington Nationals’ sixth straight victory, 4-3 over the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday night.

Harper and Mike Trout traded first-inning homers, but Harper won the superstar duel with another spectacular offensive game in his 24-for-51 July. He barely missed hitting for the cycle when he was out by a few millimeters at second while trying to stretch a single in the third inning.

Trout went 1 for 4 with an RBI groundout in the ninth as the Angels rallied against new Washington reliever Sean Doolittle, who got a hairy save.

Albert Pujols flied out to left to end it, stranding Kole Calhoun at second.
