Everyone was talking about it when it happened in the third inning, but in case you weren’t watching, check out what Jose Iglesias did on a popup by David Ortiz:
Of course a couple of innings later Ortiz hit another popup but this time it got behind Iglesias and Ortiz had a hit. Ortiz’s quote after that:
“That’s the payback,” Ortiz said. “Payback is a beeeeeyotch!”
I dunno. I think you still owe some to Iglesias all the same.
Nationals outfielder Juan Soto hit his first major league homer on Monday evening, drilling a three-run jack on the first pitch he saw from Padres starter Robbie Erlin in the second inning. It went 422 feet to the opposite field.
Soto, 19, made his major league debut on Sunday, striking out in a pinch-hit appearance in the eighth inning. The prospect made waves already this season, cranking out 14 home runs and driving in 52 runs across 182 plate appearances with Single-A Hagerstown, High-A Potomac, and Double-A Harrisburg. Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty good.
