Nationals' Bryce Harper, Giants' Hunter Strickland turn an old feud into a fistfight in Giants' loss

Bryce Harper, his hip smarting from where he had absorbed Hunter Strickland's fastball, glowered at the pitcher and pointed his bat. He took two steps, then a third, before charging the mound. He tried to fling his helmet but it slipped from his grasp and tumbled away like a grounder to second base. Then came an exchange of artlessly missed punches, an open-handed slap to Harper's face and a fist that mostly mashed the bill of Strickland's hat.
