HOUSTON -- Washington outfielder Bryce Harper had surgery on his injured left thumb on Tuesday and will be out for an extended period of time. Manager Matt Williams would not commit to a time frame, but said "that time frame is out there" after reports Monday that he would be out until at least July. "The doctor reported that everything went fine, and we got a little message from Bryce about getting back and taking BP post-surgery," Williams joked. "It went fine, well have to see how long it takes ... we expect him to heal fast. Given his history, he has healed pretty fast. We are optimistic about it, but were not really sure how long it is going to take." The two-time All-Star was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Sunday with what was then called a sprained left thumb. Williams talked about what Harpers absence will mean for his team. "It hurts a lot. Hes a fantastic player," Williams said. "Well certainly miss him, but were going to have to step up." He was injured on Friday night against San Diego on a headfirst slide into third base on a triple. He remained in the game until after the next inning. Despite the injury, Williams is not opposed to headfirst slides. "Bryce had another collision sliding feet first earlier in the year, and he hurt himself last year sliding feet first," Williams said. "Its something that you cant control. The play that he hurt himself on, he was trying to get to third base the quickest he could, and I dont know if he is safe if he slides feet first. He was safe sliding head first, but he got the thumb in the wrong position." The 21-year-old Harper is batting .289 with one home run and nine RBIs this season. Harper was the National League Rookie of the Year in 2012 after hitting .270 with 22 homers and 59 RBIs.

LOUIS -- When Braves second baseman Tyler Pastornicky backpedaled into shallow right field to catch the popup and Jason Heyward didnt arrive fast enough to take charge, Kolten Wong got the green light. The rookie raced home with the tying run on surely the shortest sacrifice fly of Yadier Molinas career, one of many big plays the St. Louis Cardinals made with their legs in a 4-1 victory over the slumping Atlanta Braves on Saturday. "By the time I realized I could get there, it would have been tough to call him off," Heyward said. "Heads up play on their part by sending the runner." Wong and Peter Bourjos each had a pair of bunt singles, three of them fueling rallies. Bourjos got picked off after beating out a bunt leading off the third, but squeezed home an insurance run in the seventh. "I think today was probably one of the best representations of what speed can do for us," manager Mike Matheny said. "A lot of guys made things happen, getting on base and creating havoc." Wong set up the tying run by beating out a bunt to lead off the fourth. He squared around for another hit in the sixth and drew a wild throw from catcher Evan Gattis while stealing second, producing the go-ahead run. The Cardinals matched their season high with their fourth straight win. Miller (6-2) allowed a run and five hits in seven innings, one inning longer than his previous high this season. He matched his season best with seven strikeouts, fanning B.J. Upton three times, and called it his best outing of the year "for sure." "I felt like we did a really good job of keeping the hitters off-balance and getting ahead in the count," Miller said. "Just an all-around good day, but at the same time theres still room for improvement." Trevor Rosenthal fanned two in the ninth inning, with Upton striking out a fourth time, to earn his 13th save in 14 chances. He has a save in three straight games for the second time in his career. Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez was ejected in the ffifth inning for arguing a call that led to a bunt double play.dddddddddddd. He could face a fine for charging out of the dugout a second time and thought the ball was "maybe 5, 6 inches foul." "Thats what I kept asking: Can we get some help from one of the guys on the line?" Gonzalez said. "What are you going to do? We still scored one run. "But that would have been a nice opportunity to try again to advance a runner," he added. Andrelton Simmons had three hits for Atlanta, which lost its third in a row and scored fewer than three runs for the 19th time in 41 games this season. Miller has won six straight decisions in seven starts after losing his first two of the season. The last three St. Louis starters have worked seven innings. In the fifth, Harang stayed in the batters box after his attempt to sacrifice Simmons to third didnt go far. Molina pounced on the ball and threw to third, with shortstop Jhonny Peralta covering, for a tag play. Peralta had an easy relay to first to finish with second baseman Wong covering for an unusual 2-6-4 double play. "What stinks is sometimes its those little plays that change the tempo of the game," Harang said. "If its called four, then I can get another one down. Its tough, you know." The Braves capitalized on shoddy defence to take the early lead. Simmons scored from first on Harangs two-out single -- the pitchers first hit of the year. Harang took third after left fielder Matt Holliday threw behind him, then trotted home after Wongs wild throw from second. NOTES: Cardinals lefty Jaime Garcia will make his first start since injuring his shoulder last May in the series finale, with Gavin Floyd (0-1, 2.70) starting for Atlanta. ... The attendance of 44,981 was the Cardinals eighth sellout. ... B.J. Upton made a nice running shoe-top catch on Allen Craigs sinking fly ball to start the second. ... The Braves are 1-4 against the Cardinals and 8-1 against the rest of the NL Central. ... Molina is 10 for 21 the last six games. ' ' '
