WASHINGTON (AP) — Juan Soto homered to back Paolo Espino and the Washington Nationals beat Colorado 3-0 to end the Rockies’ rare five-game road winning streak.

Soto hit a 454-foot drive in the third inning off Jon Gray for his 26th home run this season. Soto is hitting .362 with a 1.178 OPS since the All-Star break.
