A pair of famous Nevadans met and chatted Friday night in Washington, D.C.

Senator Harry Reid and Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper spoke briefly on the field at Nationals Park before Washington's game against Philadelphia. Reid tweeted this photo and message after the encounter:

Excited to meet Bryce Harper, fellow Nevadan & great baseball talent. Hope to see him hit one out tonight #nationals

Harper, a Las Vegas native who attended Las Vegas High School and the College of Southern Nevada, went 0-for-3 with three walks in Friday's 4-3 victory against the Phillies.
