Washington, D.C. — The early-season story for the Washington Nationals — the on-the-field story, not everything going on with Juan Soto’s slow clearance from a positive COVID-19 test or the postponement of this weekend’s series against the virus-riddled Miami Marlins — has been about struggles at the plate combined with a vulnerability to the long ball.
That narrative continued to crystallize Tuesday as the Nationals lost in familiar fashion to the Toronto Blue Jays, 5-1, and dropped to a league-worst record of 1-4.
