Homers Alfonso Soriano hit at RFK Stadium last year as a National. Washington has 17 homers as a team at RFK this season.

PERSONNEL DEPT.

Reliever Jesus Colome remained in a hospital yesterday with an infection on his right buttock, though GM Jim Bowden said he would get out today. The Nationals don't know when Colome, 4-0 with a 2.76 ERA in 40 appearances, will be able to pitch. "It's a serious situation," Bowden said. "We pray for his buttocks and his family." . . . RHP Shawn Hill played catch for the second time as he works his way back from tendinitis in his right elbow.

QUOTABLE

"We have to move on."

-- Manager Manny Acta, on the injury to LHP Micah Bowie. Acta will use his 10th starting pitcher of the year tonight
