Panda! Sandoval helps Braves double headers against Nats | to sweep sports

Atlanta’s Pablo Sandoval drove a two-run homer into the deepest part of Nationals Park in front of a Washington reliever who took command after Stephen Strasburg’s six goalless innings on Wednesday and the Braves to a 2-0 win over the Nationals and one Double header sweep brought.

In the opener, Ronald Acuña Jr. led the way with doubles and singles to help Atlanta take a four-game loss, beating Washington 7-6.

Sandoval, who hit three homers in one game in 2012 while receiving the World Series MVP award for the San Francisco Giants, signed a minor league deal with the Braves in January that earned him a $ 1 million one-year deal, when he turned 40-man roster.

The guy lovingly known as Kung Fu Panda sure looks like a bargain right now at 34, especially after hitting a 96 mph fastball from Tanner Rainey (0-1) more than 400 feet to Dansby Swanson’s split single drove in the seventh and final inning.

Reds 11, Pirates 4: Tyler Naquin scored another lead-off home run and the high-profile Cincinnati Reds rolled on, assisting Luis Castillo to beat the Pittsburgh Pirates in Cincinnati for the fifth straight time.

Gemini 3, Tiger 2: Jorge Polanco scored a double with two runs in the sixth inning and the Minnesota Twins held Akil Baddoo and the Detroit Tigers back in Detroit.

Baddoo hit an RBI triple and threw a runner out of left field – another impressive day in this outstanding start to his career in the big league. But the rookie was doubled after his huge success in third place – it was a tough day on the bases for the Tigers, who also had two outs at home in sixth.

Wilson Ramos met Detroit and Matthew Boyd (1-1) allowed three runs in seven innings.

Phillies 8, Mets 2: Alec Bohm and JT Realmuto each hit a homer with three runs, Rhys Hoskins had a solo shot, and the Philadelphia Phillies defeated the New York Mets in Philadelphia.

Phillie’s ace Aaron Nola only lasted four innings, throwing the last two out of trouble. He allowed one run and six hits and hit five.

Mariners 8, White Sox 4: Kyle Seager hit an opposing field, the bases double cleared for the big blow in Seattle’s sixth sixth inning, and the Mariners avoided a sweep with a win over the Chicago White Sox in Seattle.

Brett Gardner put Urshela, the automatic runner, in third to open the inning. DJ LeMahieu then yanked a liner to the right. Santander put his feet up, caught it, and delivered a perfect throw home, a few steps from Urshela, who first slid his face into Pedro Severino’s label.
