The former Giant continued tormenting Los Angeles in his second game as a National, smashing a go-ahead, two-out grand slam in the eighth inning against Dylan Floro in the Dodgers' 5-2 loss.

Moneyline: The Nationals (+130) have dug themselves into a hole to kick off a new series, while the Dodgers (-150) have gotten out to fast starts, especially at home. Since the start of the 2016 season, Corbin has a respectable.322 ERA and.237 opponent batting average against the Dodgers across 10 starts and 11 appearances, but he has a 1-5 record, too. All told, he went eight shutout innings, allowing just the one hit and one walk, striking out nine and providing 116 pitches.

"I kind of saw it come toward me and it looked like it was coming toward my face so I just tried to protect myself and felt it hit the side of my hand", Fried said. The bats were quiet as the Nationals were only able to gather five hits, none for extra bases. Ozzie Albies, Dansby Swanson, and Tyler Flowers accounted for the other three hits, all singles.

Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw throws to an Atlanta Braves batter during the first inning of a baseball game Wednesday, May 8, 2019, in Los Angeles. They won the first game against the Dodgers behind seven scoreless innings from Patrick Corbin.

Hyun-Jin Ryu (4-1, 2.03 ERA) will oppose Strasburg on Sunday. He went 4 for 5 and drilled 3 home runs. Waived by San Francisco last week, Parra could be in the lineup again on Sunday as the Nationals conclude this four-game series against the host Dodgers.

Los Angeles extended its lead to 4-2 in the fifth on Muncy's RBI single. The Nationals are still a disappointing 16-23 for the season. The under is 21-8 in Strasburgs last 29 road starts.

"They're going to be right in it over there in the East, so it feels good to sweep them at home", Clayton Kershaw said. Nick Markakis has had the most success and is 4 for 9 with two doubles.

Atlanta sluggers Freddie Freeman and Ronald Acuña Jr. were a combined 0 for 7.

Kershaw was the big storyline heading into the winter, having signed a three-year, $93 million extension that made him one of the highest-paid players in baseball.

Braves: RH Mike Soroka (3-1, 1.14 ERA) starts Thursday in the opener of a four-game set at Arizona. The Nationals scored in just one of the final 27 innings of the series. Ryan Zimmermann is 6 for 11 with two homers and a double but is injured. Corey Seager is 1 for 3 with a double, and Alex Verdugo is 1 for 2 with a home run.

So even though Hill gave up five runs (one earned) in his season debut on April 28 against the Pittsburgh Pirates, and he gave up three more in four innings against the San Diego Padres on Saturday, the Dodgers won both games by 7-6 scores.

Run line: The Nationals' pitcher (+1.5, -174), Corbin, knows the Dodgers (-1.5, +148) well.
