Soto Auditions Well In LA, Stott Takes Down Braves

Jonathan Grant | July 26th, 2022

Juan Soto could soon be on the move, and one of the teams he has been rumored to be of interest to just so happens to be the team that his Washington Nationals took on on Monday night: the Los Angeles Dodgers. If Soto is a player the Dodgers are interested in, then he certainly would have done plenty on this particular evening to convince them to chase him.

The Home Run Derby winner, a man that just turned down a massive $440 million deal, went 2-4 at Dodger Stadium with a two-run triple to lead his team from behind to win 4-1. In doing so, he helped snap an eight-game winning run for the hosts, and he also might just have made their mind up for them once and for all to pull the trigger on a deal. Elsewhere, the Atlanta Braves were falling to the Philadelphia Phillies thanks to a spectacular showing from Bryson Stott. The shortstop, hitting out of the eight-hole, went 2-4 in the contest, a 6-4 win at home for the Phillies, while racking up five RBI’s in the contest. His strange early double drove in two in the third while a three-run homer in the bottom of the eighth took his team from a run behind to two ahead. The win ended a three-game losing skid, and they will hope to crawl back toward contention as the series continues with the defending World Series champs on Tuesday.
