Hamels, Howard hammer Nats
Sori's milestone spoiled
Slugger Alfonso Soriano, who reached the 30-30 plateau for the fourth time on Friday, belted his career-high 40th homer, but it came in a losing effort after Ramon Ortiz allowed eight runs in 1 2/3 innings and was ejected for hitting Aaron Rowand. Alex Escobar also went deep for Washington.
