Nationals 8, Padres 5: Johnson loses on longball

That was a lot of home runs. Erik Johnson is having a less than great start to his Padres career. He allowed five runs in tonight’s loss, with four of them coming on a trio of home runs by the Nationals.

Giants’ forecast: lots of Arenado — and rain?

Giants’ forecast: lots of Arenado — and rain? In 57 games against San Francisco pitching, Arenado has 17 home runs -- For the sake of comparison, Matt Kemp and Adrian Gonzalez homered 20 times against the Giants, most among active players. The game was delayed 42 minutes because a rain storm was expected, but it never arrived. The lineup is without Hunter Pence (strained right hamstring) and Brandon Belt (sprained left ankle). Manager Bruce Bochy said Pence could start if he showed he’s ready in pregame drills, but that didn’t happen, perhaps because Bochy anticipated wet...
