hit in his impressive rookie season Stephen Strasburg Jersey , though it came long after most of the Nationals Park crowd had gone home.Soto’s two-run single highlighted a four-run eighth inning and the Washington Nationals rallied past the Milwaukee Brewers for a 5-4 win in a game that was delayed 1 hour, 57 minutes by rain in the top of the eighth and ended well past midnight.“It’s a testament to the boys. They don’t quit,” Nationals manager Dave Martinez said. “They wanted to get back out there and play. They got the field ready. Stopped raining for us. We were able to come back and get a big win.”With Washington trailing 3-1 in the eighth, Adam Eaton capped a nine-pitch at-bat with a two-out double off Joakim Soria (1-1). Trea Turner then lofted a single to left to make it 3-2. After Turner stole second Bryce Harper and Anthony Rendon walked to load the bases.With close Josh Hader unavailable, Dan Jennings came on to face Soto, who singled up the middle on a 2-2 pitch, scoring Turner and Harper with his third hit of the night.“I was there to fight,” Soto said. “I know he got a little bit problem, sometimes he (balks). So, I know he’s going to throw the fastball because he doesn’t feel very comfortable doing his move.”Rendon then scored on a wild pitch by Jordan Lyles.“Dan did his job,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said of Jennings. “He gives up a ground ball and that’s what we’re asking Dan to do is get a ground ball … but Soto hit a ground ball up the middle.”Washington’s Greg Holland (1-2) retired Manny Pina with the bases loaded to end the eighth and Justin Miller survived Tyler Saladino’s pinch-hit solo homer in the ninth for his second save.Pina had two hits including a seventh-inning home run.Milwaukee saw its three-game winning streak snapped one day after acquiring a trio of veterans, pitchers Gio Gonzalez and Xavier Cedeno, and outfielder Curtis GrandersonBrewers starter Chase Anderson gave up a run and four hits over five innings before the bullpen lost the lead.“I think we’ll be fine,” Anderson said of the loss. “I know how we respond to things. Our bullpen’s picked up the starters a lot this year. Just gotta pick those guys up.”Washington’s Stephen Strasburg allowed two runs on five hits over six innings while striking out seven.Strasburg held the Brewers to one hit through four innings, but they broke through in the fifth.After Mike Moustakas doubled, Jonathan Schoop’s smash deflected off Rendon’s glove at third and down the line. As Rendon jogged after it, Moustakas scored. With two outs, Christian Yelich lined a single just beyond the reach of a leaping second baseman Wilmer Difo to make it 2-0.Washington got one back on Difo’s infield single in the bottom half.FAREWELL GIOFormer National Gonzalez was the subject of a pregame video tribute and received a warm ovation. It’s unclear how he’ll be used by Milwaukee, which has named starting pitchers — none of them Gonzalez — through Wednesday. “He will play a role,” manager Craig Counsell said. “He started (last Wednesday). He’s not available to pitch right now. When he’s able to pitch here, he will get outs for us.”WELCOME TO THE TEAMBrewers: Recalled C Jacob Nottingham, INF Tyler Saladino http://www.nationalsfanproshop.com/authentic-matt-adams-jersey , OF Domingo Santana and RHP Brandon Woodruff from Triple-A Colorado Springs; and OF Keon Broxton from Class-A Wisconsin.Nationals: Recalled C Pedro Severino and selected the contract of RHP Austen Williams from Triple-A Syracuse.TRAINER’S ROOMNationals: C Matt Wieters is dealing with a hip/groin issue that has bothered him since Washington’s series in Philadelphia earlier this week.

Abbie Parr/Getty ImagesThis year's MLB free-agent market is thin on impact starting pitching, and that could make for a busy winter on the trade market.Patrick Corbin, Dallas Keuchel and Nathan Eovaldi are the leading candidates for long-term deals, while seasoned veterans Charlie Morton (35) and J.A. Happ (36) are also capable of making a difference in the late stages of their respective careers.Beyond those five guys, it's largely a collection of injury risks and back-end starters.It should come as no surprise, then, that some of the biggest trade rumors to have surfaced here in the early stages of the offseason have been pitching-centric. Ahead we've taken a look at some of the more notable recent chatter. James Paxton Drawing Interested from Astros, YankeesStephen Brashear/Getty ImagesSeattle Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto was quick to downplay the likelihood of a full-scale rebuild after rumors surfaced that the M's might be open for business this winter.However, he didn't exactly sound like he was closed off to the idea of trading some big names either, telling Greg Johns of MLB.com: "Clearly over-dramatized is the best way to put that. We're open-minded to different ways we can get better, but what we're hoping to achieve is to reimagine our roster to look at it in terms of what is our quickest path to a championship club."In the days since those comments during the annual GM meetings, left-hander James Paxton has emerged as perhaps the most likely candidate to be moved among the club's big names.The Houston Astros are reportedly one team showing interest as they look to replace departing free agents Charlie Morton and Dallas Keuchel, while also dealing with the loss of Lance McCullers Jr. who recently underwent Tommy John surgery.Ken Rosenthal Ken_Rosenthal#Astros on list of teams talking to #Mariners about a trade for LHP James Paxton, sources say. Market described as 鈥渁ctive,鈥?including HOU, NYY and a wide variety of other clubs. Paxton in his career against HOU: 2.89 ERA in 71 2/3 innings, .605 opponents鈥?OPS.To take those head-to-head stats a step further, in eight starts against the Astros over the past two seasons, Paxton has gone 6-1 with a 1.89 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 46 strikeouts in 47.2 innings. That's an impressive run of success against any in-division opponent Anthony Rendon Jersey , let alone one of the most potent offenses in baseball.It's unlikely the Astros would be willing to part with Kyle Tucker, Forrest Whitley or Josh James in trade talks, but their system is plenty deep enough behind those three headliners to get a deal done.Outfielder Yordan Alvarez and right-handers Corbin Martin andJ.B. Bukauskas could all work as potential centerpieces.Meanwhile, the New York Yankees have also been linked to Paxton as they continue their search for rotation help.Ken Rosenthal Ken_Rosenthal#Yankees among teams that have spoken to #Mariners about a trade for LHP James Paxton, sources tell The Athletic. Paxton has two years of control left and is projected by mlbtraderumors to earn $9M in arbitration next season. NYY also on free-agent LH starters Corbin, Happ, etc.The Yankees have already re-signed CC Sabathia to a one-year deal to rejoin Luis Severino and Masahiro Tanaka in the rotation, but they're not finished adding arms by any means.If the Mariners are looking for one top-tier prospect in the deal, the headliner from the Yankees side would likely be Estevan Florial, since left-hander Justus Sheffield will be off-limits.Otherwise, they could put together an attractive package of high-ceiling arms in a system rich on pitching talent.Paxton, 30, pitched a career-high 160.1 innings in 2018, going 11-6 with a 3.76 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and a 208-to-42 strikeout-to-walk ratio.He comes with two more years of team control and is projected to earn an extremely team-friendly $9 million in his third year of arbitration, according to MLBTradeRumors.Yankees Discussed Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco at GM MeetingsTim Warner/Getty ImagesRumors surfaced last week that the Cleveland Indians will be willing to listen to offers for a number of high-profile veterans this offseason as they continue to deal with financial restrictions.Buster Olney Buster_ESPNFaced with market constraints, the Indians will listen to trade offers for some of their veteran players this winter, according to sources. Kluber, Carrasco, Encarnacion, Gomes Daniel Murphy Jersey , etc. Lindor, Ramirez will definitely be held.The Yankees became an obvious speculative trade partner for Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco as they look to bolster the rotation.Now it appears there's at least some basis for that speculation, as the two teams reportedly met during the recent GM meetings.Jon Heyman JonHeymanNYY met with Indians about Kluber and Carrasco at gm meetings, and via Ken_Rosenthal has now talked to Seattle EHOXdtlHiTAside from the aforementioned Florial, the Yankees have a teenage outfielder with an extremely high ceiling named Everson Pereira, and he's a name to know as the team continues to scour the trade market for pitching help.Kluber (33 GS, 20-7, 2.89 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, 222 K, 215 IP) and Carrasco (30 GS, 17-10, 3.38 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, 231 K, 192 IP) would both be game-changing additions to a Yankees focused on chasing down the rival Boston Red Sox in the AL East.Time will tell if any of these front-line arms are actually moved, but it's already shaping up to be an exciting winter on the trade market.
