According to STATS

Washington Nationals at San Diego Padres

  1. The Nationals lost, 3-2, at home to the Angels yesterday, splitting the two-game series, and finishing up a nine-game homestand with a mark of 6-3. Washington is 10-3 (.769) on the road against NL West clubs in 2017 -- best of any team in the National League.
  2. Clayton Richard recorded his third career complete-game shutout yesterday, leading the Padres to a 3-0 victory over the Phillies at Petco Park. Including a three-game sweep of Philadelphia, San Diego is now 10-5 (.667) at home since the 2017 All-Star break.
  3. Washington took two of three from San Diego in these clubs' first meeting of the year at Nationals Park (May 26-28). Dating to the beginning of last season, the Nats and Padres have played 10 times, each team winning five of those games.
  4. Edwin Jackson went 6.0 innings and allowed just one run last Saturday against the Giants, earning the victory, and improving to 3-2 with a 3.30 ERA in five starts with the Nats. Jackson is 0-6 with a 7.16 ERA in 10 career starts vs. the Padres.
  5. Jhoulys Chacin allowed one run in 5.0 IP last Saturday against the Dodgers, but was saddled with his fifth no-decision of the season for the effort. Chacin is 3-0 with a 2.63 ERA in his last five starts vs. the Nationals.
  6. Wil Myers stole second, third and home in the fourth inning yesterday, becoming the first player to swipe every base in an inning since Dee Gordon did so on July 1, 2011. Myers (24 HR, 14 SB) is one of six MLB players who leads his team in both home runs and stolen bases this season.

SAN DIEGO -- The Washington Nationals will settle in for their Friday game with the San Diego Padres after absorbing yet another injury.

Washington reliever Ryan Madson landed on the disabled list before the Nationals beat the Padres 2-1 on Thursday. He is the latest key player to go down for the Nationals after Bryce Harper injured his left knee last week.

"Nobody really talks about it," manager Dusty Baker said of the Nationals' walking wounded. "I know it's corny, but it's next man up."

Washington, in addition to Harper, is without outfielders Jason Werth, Adam Eaton, Ryan Raburn and Brian Goodwin.

"We thought we were deep in the outfield," said Baker, who has used 13 outfielders this season. "Now I think they might call me back to play."

Plus, shortstop Trea Turner is absent.

"When you get your bench guys playing (every day), (it) makes your bench weaker than you're used to," Baker said. "But if you are here, you are here to play. I'm going to try and put you in a position to succeed, and everybody has had a hand in our success so far. Our confidence level is outstanding, and we are finding ways to win games."

Wilmer Dilfo has hit safely in 11 of his past 12 games while filling in for Turner.

Howie Kendrick, who came over from the Philadelphia Phillies last month, hit two homers Tuesday against the Los Angeles Angels after winning the Sunday game against the San Francisco Giants with a walk-off grand slam in the 11th inning. He had a double Thursday in the series opener against the Padres.

"Our secondary guys have filled in admirably and probably done more than we expected," Baker said. "We haven't lost a whole bunch even without our regulars being with us.

"Whoever is coming up has performed well. And our veterans, guys that have been here awhile, have made them feel welcome, made them feel like they are an important part of the team -- which they are. All of them performed well."

Even with the big names off the marquee, the National League East-leading Nationals remain impressive.

"They still have Daniel Murphy in there, they still have (Anthony) Rendon, still have (Ryan) Zimmerman," Padres manager Andy Green said. "For some teams, that's as good as it gets.

"Now they usually have more length than that, but Difo has played well for them at shortstop, and Mike Taylor has played a good center field. They are really good -- and we're getting the teeth of their rotation."

Max Scherzer (12-5, 2.25 ERA) will take the mound for Washington on Friday. The Padres stared down the two-time Cy Young Award winner earlier this season, and Scherzer was dominant. He finished one out shy of a complete game, allowing a run on three hits and striking out 11.

Scherzer, who is 3-2 with a 2.34 ERA in nine lifetime starts against the Padres, has surrendered four runs over 14 innings in his past two starts when facing them.

San Diego will counter with Luis Perdomo (6-7, 4.95). He has gone at least six innings in his past five starts, although he lost Sunday when he allowed five runs and four hits over six innings against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

He has split two decisions against the Nationals, amassing a 3.46 ERA in two starts.

"It comes down to pitching to both sides of the plate for him," Green said. "It's working the sinker into lefties and doing the same for righties. Location is big for him.

"When he starts to pitch in the outer lane and he intends for it to stay there, it needs to stay in the outer lane. I think one of his bigger problems is going outer lane and the pitch leaks back into the inner lane. Sometimes he gets away with it, but that can be the pitch that gets hit the most."
