WASHINGTON -- Bryce Harpers return had an immediate impact on the Washington Nationals lineup on Monday night. Adam Gotsis Jersey . Adam LaRoche homered, Ryan Zimmerman had three hits and Ian Desmond added two doubles and three RBIs batting seventh as the Nationals welcomed back Harper with a 7-3 win over the Colorado Rockies. Harper, who missed 57 games because of a torn ligament in his left thumb, went 1 for 3 with an RBI single -- on Bryce Harper bobblehead night. "Having such a deep lineups huge," Harper said. "One through eight, pick your poison because youre going to get a guy who can hit the ball out of the ballpark or hit a double or anything like that." Jordan Zimmermann (6-4) allowed two runs in six innings as Washington won its third straight. The Nationals trailed 2-1 before a five-run sixth. With runners on first and second and one out, Zimmerman doubled to left off reliever Rod Scahill, scoring Anthony Rendon. "I tried to go in on Zimmerman, I missed two times in," Scahill said. "The third time in, it was a little bit more down than I wanted it to be and thats where he can get to that ball. And he got to it." Harper was walked intentionally and Desmond followed with a bases-clearing double into the left-field corner. "Thats the kind of decision-making and pressure we want to apply," manager Matt Williams said. "Bryce is a very good hitter, hed come through earlier in the game against the lefty for a base hit and an RBI and those are the decisions you have to make in that regard." Monday night marked the first time since opening day -- when catcher Wilson Ramos left the game with an injury -- that this starting eight had taken the field. Desmond is 6-for-6 with the bases loaded this season and, for his career is 11-for-17 with 16 RBIs when the batter before him is walked intentionally. "I just try to do the same thing I do every other time," said Desmond, who stole third and scored on Ramos grounder to second. Zimmermann, who finished June with a 3-2 record and a 1.43 ERA in six starts, allowed seven hits, struck out five and walked one. Hed been a victim of poor run support while going 0-2 in his last three outings. "Im just locating really well right now," he said. "Nothing really has changed, just locating well and the sliders really good. (If) I have those two things working together, I can usually string some pretty good starts together." Justin Morneau had three hits for the Rockies, who have lost 12 of 14 and finished the month of June 8-20. Yohan Flande (0-1), making his second start, was charged with three runs on six hits. He left with a 2-1 lead and runners on first and second in the sixth. "I think Flande was throwing the ball really well, but the first two guys got on in the inning," manager Walt Weiss said. "A guy making his second major league start, you want to be out in front of stuff before it happens to a kid like that. "Wasnt real comfortable with the Zimmerman matchup and went and tried to play a matchup that didnt work out." Harper, batting sixth and playing left field, was given a standing ovation when he batted in the second after LaRoches one-out single, but grounded into a double play. In the fourth, however, after Zimmerman doubled with two outs, Harper brought him home with a sharp grounder up the middle. "Its a strong lineup and I dont think theres too many opposing pitchers out there that want to see it," Desmond said. "It was nice to have Bryce back." The Rockies took a 2-1 lead in the sixth on back-to-back doubles by Drew Stubbs and Troy Tulowitzki, a line-drive single by Morneau that moved Tulowitzki to third, and sacrifice fly by Ryan Wheeler to short centre. NOTES: To make room for Harper, the Nationals optioned LHP reliever Xavier Cedeno to Triple-A Syracuse. ... Colorado placed RHP Jhoulys Chacin (inflamed shoulder) on the 15-day DL. Manager Walt Weiss said Franklin Morales will make Chacins scheduled Thursday start, giving the Rockies five left-handers in their starting rotation. The Rockies recalled RHP reliever Chad Bettis from Triple-A Colorado Springs. ... Rockies OF Corey Dickerson, who left Sundays game with a hamstring cramp in the eighth inning, was not in the starting lineup, but entered as part of a double switch in the sixth. ... Washingtons Stephen Strasburg (6-6, 3.70) opposes Christian Friedrich (0-2, 8.10) Tuesday. Brandon McManus Jersey . -- Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman is undergoing surgery to repair a broken bone above his left eye but has no other serious injuries after being hit in the face by a line drive in a spring training game. Menelik Watson Jersey . Yet now its time for the most important pick of them all; the Grey Cup. The thought of going 5-0 with the correct choice is quite intoxicating, I dont think I have ever gone perfect in my CFL futuristic playoff speculations and would take great pride in guessing - I mean analyzing - correctly. http://www.broncosproauthentic.com/Black-Friday-Jake-Butt-Jersey/ . Snedekers best result so far this year is a tie for eighth place at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in March. He sits 113th in FedEx Cup standings and has dropped to 31st in world rankings — not the results expected from a player ranked fourth in the world only two years ago."Our fans deserve better. Changes will be coming, guaranteed." So said Impact President Joey Saputo in that now infamous tweet heard right around the MLS world, back on May 10. Many jumped to the (incorrect) conclusion Saputo meant he was about to jettison a third head coach in just over two seasons. The more rational focused on player movements. Since that time, a revolving door of player movements was put into maximum effect at Stade Saputo. Including the arrival - finally - of Ignaccio Piatti shortly after Nick De Santis was unceremoniously relieved. Harking back to that early spring Saturday afternoon as Saputo left his seat following a rather shambolic 0-3 home reversal against Sporting KC, no one could have dared to imagine what changes Joey Saputo would go on to announce at Thursdays press conference. Saputo is a man with a three-year plan. Hes also at least $10 million shorter in the wallet. This is the projected cost of an impeccable-looking training facility which will be constructed over the next year or so. A Heritage Montreal building which originally opened back to 1915 will form the façade. And its located a few goal kicks or so Southwest of Saputo Stadium with the St. Lawrence Seaway forming the backdrop. It will be the home base for the entire club, from the senior squad right down to the youngest academy teams. In terms of football pitches, there will be two natural surfaces complemented with two artificial ones. Its a huge step up to the current set up where the club have an inadequate indoor facility for the winter months and spread themselves rather thin through the remainder of the season. Either utilizing a facility built as a training facility for the 1976 Olympics or the parcel of land that sits right between Olympic and Saputo Stadiums - a jumpers-for-goal-posts scenario if ever there was one. If the prospect of a destination training facility was the appetizer, then the formation of FC Montreal is certainly the cherry on the cake. With the demise of the MLS Reserve League, the club have gone the USL Pro route, where old but not exactly dear acquaintances will be renewed. Back in Fall of 2009, the Impact were crowned USL First Division Playoff Champions. A month later due to a dispute with the league, they broke away and became part of the NASL Version 2.0. FC Montreal will kick off next season and comprise of young Quebeckers culled from the Impacts Under-18 and Under-23 teams. The philosophy here is to provide a more complete competitive environment ahead of the quantum leap to the senior squad. The Impact brethren now truly have two teams to cheer for. It surely cant be long before a Twitter handle pops up for an FC Montreal Supporters Group. A perfect pick me up tonic for an ailing MLS club that at times this season which would have been routed by that 2009 USL Championship team. Saputo was far from finished. A well-rested and refreshed looking Nick De Santis has been rebranded into the title of Director of International Business Development. A significant part of that portfolio will be entering the global market for acquiring players - and not necessarily for MLS. "Were thinking now of sales, investtments on players, re-selling players," De Santis disclosed to TSN Radio 690 Thursday evening. Chris Harris Jr Jersey. . I think probably now is a good opportunity now to start as well now with the relationships Ive built especially in South American with young players. "This is something which we are going to start working on. I truly believe it could be prosperous." Over his time as GM and throughout MLS as Sporting Director, De Santis has scoured South America - Argentina especially, travelled to Africa and spent significant time in a number of European nations. He referenced attending reserve team games in Argentina, where he had identified talent that ultimately ended up at the Santiago Barnebeau or at other big clubs across the pond. "I think in North America as well its starting to catch on of that culture of buying and selling players," he explained. The multilingual De Santis fits the profile of a globe-trotting football agent. This concept certainly maximizes the valuable rolodex of contacts and player/agent network he has formed over this last decade. It would have been a form of football suicide from the Impact to allow De Santis to possibly forge a new career for himself outside of Saputo Stadium. This after all, is an individual who has sat down with some of the biggest agents there is in world football, and whose client roster list could fil out any World Select XI. Having taken care of significant business on the pitch, Saputo also introduced three new senior members of his management team. Over the MLS years, the club has not come close to maximising its potential at the box office nor with Montreals business community. In fact, it has come up woefully short. This significant void has been addressed in the hiring of Andre Cote as Chief Strategic Officer, Hugues Leger as Chief Marketing Officer and Marc Bourassa as Chief Revenue Officer. The three combined have a myriad of executive experience and successes with significant companies and brand. The like of which should allow for them to complement each other - as they take their very first dip into the soccer industry and the outstanding commercial opportunities this presents. Meanwhile on the pitch, the Impact has undergone a renaissance of sorts since Piattis arrival, this no more apparent than in last Saturdays master class and brace versus Columbus. On Saturday evening, the Impact pay a visit to the cauldron that is the late summer Texas heat of Houston, an environment which has not been kind to them over the years. However, the destiny of a potential season lost will come in the form of a critical upcoming home and home series against the Red Bulls in the Champions League. The first of those mouth-watering encounters occurs at Saputo on Sept. 17. The club president will be looking to fill the house that only 17,000 bothered to show for in last Saturdays league match. A victory could all be assured the CONCACAF Champions League knockout stages pay a return visit to La Belle Ville after a six-year absence.
