Soto’s 2-run HR completes rally as Nats stop Phillies

The Washington Nationals and the Philadelphia Phillies will conclude their Major League Baseball series on Sunday.

The Nationals hoped Scherzer could pitch as soon as Tuesday against the Baltimore Orioles, but the three-time Cy Young Award victor was placed on the injured list Saturday, retroactive to July 10. The Nationals (49-42), second in the division, have won four in a row and eight of 10, while the Phillies (47-45), third in the East, have lost two in a row and five of their last seven. Sanchez was outstanding in his previous start before the break, limiting the Marlins to only two runs (one earned) in six innings, leading to the win to improve his record to 5-6.

Washington Nationals outfielder Juan Soto stunned the rival Philadelphia Phillies with a go-ahead, two-run home run at Citizens Bank Park. Philadelphia has hit 116 home runs as a team this season. Three Philadelphia players had two hits apiece, and Rhys Hoskins had two runs. Soto hit Neris' next pitch over the fence in left-center field to complete the comeback for the Nationals, who trailed 3-0 after four innings. Sean Doolittle worked around a one-out single by Maikel Franco in the ninth to record his 20th save.

Nationals starter Patrick Corbin allowed three runs on six hits and two walks while striking out 10 over six innings. The Nationals will give the call to 35-year old right-hander Anibal Sanchez, and the Phillies will have 33-year old right-hander Jake Arrieta take the mound. He is 8-7 on the year with a 4.67 ERA. Soto also had a go-ahead solo home run against the Phillies on September 11, 2018.

Philly logged seven hits in the loss Saturday but couldn't score after the fourth inning.

Samsung may be developing foldable augmented reality glasses
Moreover, this is a patent and it does not necessarily follow that Samsung will mandatorily release AR glasses. It would turn off automatically when the temple frame was closed therefore conserving the device's battery.

The Nationals have won the first two games of the three-game series and 12 of 14 overall since June 25.

Sanchez has been pretty consistent with his outings.

The hot stretch means the Nationals can proceed cautiously with Scherzer, who is 7-0 with an 0.84 ERA in his last nine starts. He has thrown six innings in five straight and allowed just one earned run in three of them. Arrieta is trending in the other direction, allowing 14 earned runs over his last 14.1 innings.

All things considered here, I like Sanchez better right now so I'm going Nationals.
