Washington Nationals news & notes: Quick hits before today’s doubleheader/home finale…

Patrick Corbin got up 0-2 on Ronald Acuña, Jr., threw three straight balls to go full, then left a slider up and in to the Braves’ leadoff man, who hit his 40th HR of 2023 out to left field in Nationals Park to start Friday night’s game in the Washington Nationals’ home.

One batter later, after a single by Ozzie Albies, Corbin left an 0-2 sinker up and in to Austin Riley, who hit it 434 ft. to left-center field for his 37th homer this year and a 3-0 lead early in what ended up a 9-6 win for Atlanta.
