Soria is 1-3 with a 2.70 ERA and 17 saves in 19 chances during his first full season since 2011. Detroit has been looking to upgrade a relief corps that ranked 12th out of 15 American League teams with a 4.37 ERA.
In the Nats' loss on Sunday, MLB's new system of challenges showed us something we had previously yet to see: a double challenge.
More often than not, Tanner Roark would be delighted about giving up one run over seven innings.
After getting pummeled by Washington in two straight games, the Texas Rangers were eager to stop the Nationals' seemingly interminable parade around the bases.
With a series win in hand, now comes the hard part for the Nationals: solving Yu Darvish.
The pitch floated toward home plate at a deliberate 59 miles per hour.
Texas Rangers starter Nick Tepesch had solid performances in his previous three starts, winning the last two.
Anthony Rendon went 4 for 5 and hit one of four Washington home runs, and Doug Fister allowed four hits in six innings as the Nationals routed the Texas Rangers 10-2 on Saturday.
Adam LaRoche, Jose Lobaton, and pinch-hitter Scott Hairston also homered in Washington's offensive surge. The Nationals have racked up 24 runs and 42 hits in their last three games, winning two straight to climb back to .500.
Ian Desmond keyed a 15-hit attack with a three-run homer, Stephen Strasburg pitched six solid innings and the Washington Nationals defeated the Texas Rangers 9-2 on Friday night.
Previously slumping, Washington's offense has 14 runs and 30 hits in its last two games. Strasburg (4-4) allowed two unearned runs and six hits. He struck out nine and walked one, and bounced back after his second-inning error led to the Texas runs.
It had been nearly two months since Joe Saunders pitched in the majors and 10 days since his last rehab start in the minor leagues.
While the Minnesota Twins had plenty of runners on base again, most of them didn't make it home.
The tying run was 90 feet away with two outs in the seventh inning, and Joe Mauer swung and missed for strike three to complete his hitless night at the plate.
With their rotation depleted and the new slugger sidelined by a rash of injuries, the Texas Rangers have been forced to find alternate methods for winning.
