Joe Ross struggles and so do the Nationals in an 11-4 loss at Arizona

It hit Pavin Smith, the Arizona Diamondbacks runaway, and sparked the rally on Saturday night. Next, Ross went five fields with Josh Rojas, missing Eduardo Escobar and calling Yan Gomes, his catcher, to the mound. Pitching coach Jim Hickey jogged out of the dugout. The infield surrounded Ross. But five pitches later, after Escobar burned a foul ball and when it was clear Ross had lost his feel, Escobar drew a dead-center fastball for a three-run homer.
