Bad news on Juan Soto. A five-inning, rain-shortened, Opening Night loss. Thursday ended up being a long day for Nationals’ manager Davey Martinez. The good news: For now there are more games to play. So, it’s time to put it behind them, move on to tonight’s game and go 1-0 tonight.
“It turned out long,” Martinez said after the 4-1 loss on Thursday.
“Let’s just say that. From this morning till now and getting the game cut off at five innings, you know, we’ve just got to put this one behind us, we’ve got a day off tomorrow, and we come back Saturday and do it again.
