Nationals' Lane Thomas: Slugs homer No. 25
Thomas went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Brewers.
His first-inning shot of Wade Miley kicked off a three-run frame for the Nationals, but the offense went cold the rest of the way. Thomas has gone just 3-for-30 since returning from a three-game absence earlier this month due to back issues, but all three hits have gone for extra bases (one double and two home runs). On the season, the breakout star is still slashing .275/.323/.476 with 25 homers, 18 steals, 79 RBI and 94 runs.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Lane Thomas: Comes up big in return
Thomas went 1-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and a stolen base in Saturday's 7-6 extra-innings win over the Dodgers.
The outfielder had missed the last three games due to back soreness and was being eased back into action as the DH in this one, but Thomas looked completely healthy as he swiped his 18th bag of the season in the fifth inning after being hit by a pitch, then lofted his 24th homer in the seventh off Bobby Miller. Thomas has left the yard in four straight games sandwiched around his absence, going 8-for-17 over that stretch with eight RBI.... See More ... See Less
