WASHINGTON ( Associated Press) — Juan Soto, Nelson Cruz and Josh Bell hit back-to-back homers as the Washington Nationals beat the Milwaukee Brewers 8-6 on Saturday, losing their eighth straight.

Milwaukee is in the midst of its worst streak since losing eight straight from Sept. 11-19, 2015. The Brewers have been outscored 57 runs to 20 during this stretch.

Bell disappeared the ball down the left-field line, and Washington was on track for its fifth win in eight games.

Patrick Corbin (3-8) gave up four runs in just over six innings. He string together wins for the first time since June of last year.

For the Nationals, Venezuelan César Hernández 4-2 with a run scored. The Dominicans Soto 2-1 with two runs scored and three RBIs, Cruz 4-2 with one run scored and three RBIs, Maikel Franco 4-0, Víctor Robles 4-0.
