It always feels good to be out there on the field playing baseball,” Abrams commented. “Getting out there with the boys, having fun, getting the win like tonight.

Riley Adams contributed with an RBI double, and Jacob Young impressed with two hits and three stolen bases, helping Washington secure its sixth consecutive win over San Francisco.

For the Giants, Patrick Bailey and Nick Ahmed were responsible for driving in runs, but the team faced its seventh loss in nine games.

Joan Adon, making his season debut for Washington, pitched one run over four innings. He was called up from Triple-A Rochester to replace Josiah Gray, sidelined with a flexor strain in his right arm. Nationals manager Dave Martinez praised Adon’s performance, especially given the challenging weather conditions in Rochester.

Jordan Weems notched his first win of the season, despite allowing two runs, and Kyle Finnegan closed the game with 1 1/3 scoreless innings, earning his fourth save.

Giants’ Kyle Harrison struck out eight but allowed three runs across six innings. Ryan Walker, conceding the go-ahead run in the seventh, was charged with the loss.

Abrams’ two-run homer in the third and an RBI single in the fifth pushed Washington ahead. The Giants tied the game in the sixth, capitalizing on an error by Lane Thomas, but Washington regained the lead in the seventh through Trey Lipscomb’s sacrifice fly, with Adams adding an extra run in the ninth.

Despite loading the bases in the ninth, the Giants couldn’t capitalize, ending the game on a double play initiated by Finnegan, who managed to navigate out of the tight situation.

San Francisco struggled with runners in scoring position, a recurring issue that Giants manager Bob Melvin acknowledged needs improvement.

The Giants’ lack of home runs extended to a fifth game, marking their longest drought since September 2018. Meanwhile, Young’s performance made him the third Washington player to achieve three steals in as many days, a feat not seen since Rickey Henderson with Oakland in 1983.

Injury updates included Nationals’ RHP Hunter Harvey, who left the game after being struck on the hand but was later confirmed to have no fractures. For the Giants, Michael Conforto returned to the lineup after missing a game due to soreness.

The series was set to conclude with Patrick Corbin taking the mound for the Nationals against the Giants’ Jordan Hicks.
