The Cardinals won 4-3. Harper was pulled early from a game after Washington manager Matt Williams said the young outfielder didn't hustle. Harper was taken out after six innings. The 21-year-old Harper is a two-time All-Star known for his aggressive play. But in the sixth inning, he hit the ball to the mound, jogged to first and took a right turn to the dugout before getting halfway down the basepath.

A man paints a portrait of Colombian Nobel Prize 1982 in Literature laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez in his hometown Aracataca, Colombia on April 18, 2014Aracataca (Colombia) (AFP) - In his sleepy, tropical home town, the people who knew the late Nobel-winner Gabriel Garcia Marquez as a child are greeting his death with warm memories and hope. And (Garcia Marquez) just came out to go to school," recalled Anibal Calle, who knew the literature laureate as a very small boy. "At that time, the teacher would stop by their home and take him to school by the hand," said the elderly Calle, glancing at the picket fence across the street that encloses the leafy patio of the Garcia Marquez family home. Garcia Marquez, whose "magical realism" told epic stories of love, family and dictatorship in Latin America, died Thursday aged 87 in Mexico City.
