Harper ejected in Brewers loss to Nats

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Nationals usually are at their best with Bryce Harper in the lineup. On Wednesday night, Washington found its groove offensively after its All-Star was ejected and the score tied in the eighth.

Ryan Zimmerman and Adam Lind each had two-run doubles in a seven-run eighth inning to help the Washington Nationals rally past the Milwaukee Brewers 8-5.

Harper was ejected by home plate umpire Chris Segal after striking out in the eighth inning with runners on the corners. Tied 2-2, Zimmerman immediately picked up his fellow All-Star by lacing a liner into the right field corner.

Washington had six hits including four doubles in the eighth. Pedro Severino's RBI double put Washington up 8-2.

Daniel Murphy's homer pulled Washington within 2-1 in the seventh and ended a stretch of 17 1/3 scoreless innings for Washington.
