    Dodgers News: Julio Urías Enjoyed 8-Pitch Battle Against Nationals' Juan Soto

    He held the Nationals without a hit until Nelson Cruz’s leadoff double in the bottom of the fifth inning and allowed just one run on the day. Urías escaped further trouble as he struck out Soto looking to end an eight-pitch at-bat in the sixth inning.

Next for the Nationals, they face the Colorado Rockies for the second time this season. Following their series victory over the Nats, the Rockies sat at 15-10, tied for the fifth-best record in the National League, and were third in their division.
