Today’s Top Story: Nationals Play a Quick Two Against the Blue Jays 

The Nationals will kick off their four-game season series against the Toronto Blue Jays when they fly to Dunedin, Florida, for a quick two-game set. Due to Canada’s strict COVID-19 restrictions, the Nats will play at the Blue Jays Spring Training home instead of Toronto. The two teams will finish the season series in August when Toronto visits Washington for a D.C game.

The Nationals offense struggled against the first-place New York Mets this past weekend. The Nats managed a victory on Saturday but were shut out in the other two games to fall into last place in the NL East with an 8-11 record.
