Nationals seek series sweep of Padres

WASHINGTON -- After winning in a rout and then a walk-off, the Washington Nationals will go for the series sweep when they host the San Diego Padres Wednesday afternoon.

The Nationals (26-21) used four home runs to pound the Padres 10-2 in the series opener, but Tuesday night's 2-1 win required a walk-off double from struggling center fielder Michael A. Taylor in the bottom of the ninth.

Taylor's hit scored rookie Juan Soto, who drew his third walk of the game leading off the ninth and advanced to second on a ground out. It was a big hit for Washington and for Taylor, who is hitting .190 on the season.
