Hicks' HR helps Yanks top Nats 4-2 for split on odd day

The Nationals have acquired Royals closer Kelvin Herrera, and they didn't have to give up a whole lot to get him. Rookie sensation Juan Soto stays put in Washington, as does fellow outfielder Victor Robles. In return, KC gets three minor leaguers, the most highly rated of whom is Blake Perkins (Nats' no. 8 prospect according to Keith Law). Herrera, who has a 1.05 ERA and 14 saves, joins a Washington pen that already has three guys (Sean Doolittle, Ryan Madson, and Brandon Kintzler) with significant closing experience.

Maybe it's the slump. Maybe it's the heat. Regardless, Bryce Harper has ditched his beard. The clean-shaven slugger was out taking early batting practice at Nats Park, where the RealFeel is 99 degrees. Harper leads the NL in homers but is hitting .198 since the beginning of May, with 49 strikeouts and 13 walks.
