Yankees, Nationals pick up where they left off in May

According to STATS
According to STATS

New York Yankees at Washington Nationals

  1. The Yankees and Nationals split two games in the Bronx last week, with Juan Soto hitting a pair of home runs on Wednesday at 19 years, 231 days old to become the youngest player in Nationals history to have a multihomer game.
  2. Sonny Gray served up one of the homers to Soto, and ended up allowing four runs and seven hits in 5.0 innings, striking out just one - Bryce Harper in the first. Opponents are batting .394 off Gray with nobody on and nobody out -- the AL's highest mark.
  3. Giancarlo Stanton has four homers in his last eight road games after starting the season with five longballs in 23 contests away from Yankee Stadium. His 20 home runs at Nationals Park since 2010 are the most by an opposing batter.
  4. Didi Gregorius homered twice against the Nationals last week and went 6-for-11 with a solo shot in New York's weekend series with the Rays. He is slashing .344/.403/.525 with six stolen bases and 10 runs in his last 16 games after slashing .060/.113/.119 with one steal and six runs in his previous 16.
  5. Michael A. Taylor had four steals in the Sunday's 8-6 loss at Toronto -- the most by a Nationals player since Trea Turner had four last June 27. Taylor now leads the NL with 21 steals -- one ahead of Turner. They are the first set of teammates to have at least 20 steals through 69 team games since 2010, when Juan Pierre (27) and Alex Rios (20) accomplished it for the White Sox and Carl Crawford (24) and Melvin Upton Jr. (21) did it for Tampa Bay.
  6. The Nationals have been shut out three times in their last six games and have now been blanked four times in June -- the most in baseball. They had been shut out only once in the season's first two months and only the Yankees had fewer.

WASHINGTON -- On what was supposed to be a day off, the New York Yankees and the Washington Nationals will try on Monday to finish what they started in May.

The Yankees travel to Nationals Park to complete a game halted by rain on May 15 with the score tied 3-3. The teams will then make up a game that was rained out on May 16.

Slumping Bryce Harper gets the game restarted when he leads off the bottom of the sixth inning.

New York's Sonny Gray (4-4, 4.98 ERA) opposes Erick Fedde (0-1, 5.91) 30 minutes after the completion of the suspended game

Both teams are coming off a loss, though for the Yankees it's a blip and for the Nationals a trend.

Washington (37-31) completed a five-game trip through American League parks with an 8-6 loss at Toronto. The Nationals went 1-4 on the trip, ending with a sweep at the hands of the Blue Jays.

After failing to score in three of their previous five games, the Nationals produced 13 hits Sunday, only to see rare poor performances from a starter and a late-inning reliever.

Tanner Roark lasted just four innings and reliever Ryan Madson allowed two homers in the eighth inning, the first he has given up since June 4, 2017, when he was a member of the Oakland A's and Washington's Ryan Zimmerman homered.

"You never want to get swept, but I'm glad we swung the bats today," Nationals manager Dave Martinez told MASN.com. "We haven't been swinging very well. ... I'll take our chances every time we score six runs, I really will. I'm proud of them, they didn't give up, they fought the whole game."

Roark's short outing came at a particularly bad time. The Nationals used four relievers Sunday and the pitching staff is looking at 12 or more innings of work Monday.

"I stunk today," Roark told MASN.com. "Didn't really have much working for me."

Anthony Rendon, Brian Goodwin and Wilmer Difo each collected two hits, but Harper went 0-for-5. He is now batting .163 (7-for-43) in June with four walks and 20 strikeouts.

The Yankees (46-21) dropped a 3-1 decision to the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday but have won 13 of their last 17. That includes splitting two games with the Nationals last week.

CC Sabathia was the hard-luck loser Sunday when the Yankees went 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position.

"Always," Yankees manager Aaron Boone told reporters when asked if he expected three runs not to be enough against his team.

"And that's no disrespect ever to the opponent, it's just I always know that we're some traffic away from popping one," he added. "We had a little traffic and threw some hits out there, but we just couldn't get over the hump. They held us down and kept us at bay today."

The Yankees (.687) remained ahead of the 49-24 Red Sox (.671) in the AL East. New York leads the majors in runs per game, homers, homers per game, slugging percentage and OPS.

That's despite the continue struggles of Giancarlo Stanton (.243), who went 1-for-3 Sunday with a walk and two strikeouts.

"He's still working to be 'on time' and get started to his rhythm of hitting. ... That's what he's struggled with: consistently being on time. That's when you have a tendency to expand or be behind on the fastball or behind on the breaking ball," Boone told MLB.com.

However, Stanton is hitting .279 (34-for-122) with nine homers and 18 RBIs away from Yankee Stadium. And at Nationals Park, he has a career average of .289 with 20 homers and 41 RBIs in 54 games.

Gray is 0-0 with a 4.74 ERA in three starts against the Nationals. He gave up a three-run homer to rookie Juan Soto last Wednesday in a 5-4 loss to Washington when he allowed four runs on seven hits in five innings.

Fedde gave up four runs and six hits in five innings in a no-decision last week at Yankee Stadium.
