  • Soto goes back in time, homers before debut
    Nationals phenom Juan Soto added time travel to his exploits on Monday -- well sort of.

  • Soto, and a history of time-bending feats in MLB
    Juan Soto, the 19-year-old Nationals rookie outfielder, is such a phenom that he can even bend time. Well, not really.

  • Nats can't hang on, drop seesaw finale to Jays
    Ever since the Nationals acquired right-hander Ryan Madson in a trade last summer, he had not surrendered a home run in 42 1/3 innings. He acknowledged that streak had been on his mind lately, leading up to a sudden barrage Sunday afternoon in the eighth inning of a tie game at Rogers Centre, when Teoscar Hernandez and Yangervis Solarte swatted back-to-back home runs off Madson to lead the Blue Jays to an 8-6 victory.
