Phillies star Harper leaves game after foul ball off foot

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Bryce Harper left Philadelphia’s game against St. Louis on Wednesday night after he fouled a ball off his right foot.

Harper nicked one off his foot with the Phillies leading 11-1 in the fifth inning. He continued the at-bat and flied out to center. Harper had a homer, a double and four RBIs before exiting.

Harper’s removal could have been precautionary with the Phillies leading big and a day game ahead on Thursday.
