The Washington Nationals finally got to play their first game of the season Tuesday, five days later than they were supposed to, after several games had to be postponed due to Covid-19 issues.

But they were apparently ready to go, even though nine players weren’t with the team because of either positive Covid results or contact tracing, beating the Atlanta Braves at home 6-5. 


Tiger's Baddoo Continues Blazing Start

Detroit Tigers rookie outfielder Akil Baddoo continued what’s been a blazing start to his big league career Tuesday, getting a walk-off RBI single in the bottom of the 10th inning to give Detroit a 4-3 win over the Minnesota Twins.

Those heroics in the 22-year-old’s third major league game came after he hit a home run on the first pitch of his first-ever major league game Sunday, and then hit a grand slam in his second major league game Monday. 


Padres' Tatis Should Avoid Surgery

The San Diego Padres said Tuesday that star shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. should be able to avoid surgery on his left shoulder after he partially dislocated it the day before while taking a hard swing.

The 22-year-old has been put on the 10-day injured list with a slight tear of the labrum.
