Scherzer to pitch opener for Nationals vs. Padres

WASHINGTON -- The Washington Nationals are in the midst of a homestand that has them facing two teams that they host infrequently.

The Nationals ended a three-game series Thursday against the Mariners, who had not played in Washington since 2011. Seattle salvaged the final 4-2 after dropping the first two games.

On Friday, first-place Washington will begin a series with the San Diego Padres, who make their only trip of the season to the nation's capital. The Nationals, hitting a league-best .275 with a .474 team slugging average, are 28-18, while the Padres are 18-31 after a 4-3 win over the Mets on Thursday night in New York.
