Player Notes
Rafael Soriano survived a shaky ninth inning Friday against the Pirates for his 29th save of the season.

Advice: After entering the top of the ninth inning with a two-run lead, Soriano gave up a leadoff single to Starling Marte before retiring the next two batters. However, Pedro Alvarez delivered an RBI single to make it a one-run game. Chris Stewart then singled to right to bring the tying run to third base, but Soriano managed to get Josh Harrison to foul out to the catcher to end it. Soriano has pitched in three straight games, so he'll almost certainly be rested on Saturday. Tyler Clippard has also pitched the last three days, so Drew Storen could be used in a save opportunity.

Rafael Soriano earned his 28th save of the season with a perfect ninth inning in Thursday's win over the Mets.

Advice: Soriano struggled in Wednesday's outing, allowing a run but still earning the save, so Thursday's effort was heartening for Nats fans. The veteran is now 28-for-32 in save chances with a 1.90 ERA, a 0.95 WHIP, and a 45/14 K/BB ratio.

Rafael Soriano escaped a tense ninth inning, in which he allowed a run, to pick up his 27th save as the Nationals narrowly defeated the Mets on Wednesday.

Advice: Soriano gave up a lead-off home run to Travis d'Arnaud and allowed the tying run to reach third base before getting back-to-back ground outs to end the contest. Soriano is now 27-for-31 with a 1.94 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, and a 45/14 K/BB ratio this season.
