WASHINGTON (AP) — Juan 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 on Saturday night. 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. Milwaukee’s 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. Rendon then scored on a wild pitch by Jordan Lyles.
