The Nationals add some new wrinkles but get the same result as their skid reaches five
But by 5:45 p.m. Monday, about a half-hour into the game, they looked like the exact same team that had stumbled through the previous week. Once Josh Harrison singled and Soto walked with one out in the first, Josh Bell was in a 3-0 count against Braves starter Charlie Morton. He swung, connecting with an inside fastball, but popped it up to left. The next batter, Kyle Schwarber, struck out on three pitches. Then Ross put himself in a mess.
