Nationals-Mariners Preview

(AP) -- The NL East-leading Washington Nationals ended a three-game slide with a stunning offensive display.

After roughing up Seattle staff ace Felix Hernandez, the Nationals go for an 11th straight win over the Mariners in the middle game of this series Saturday night.

Washington (76-57) hammered Hernandez for four of its six homers Friday, en route to an 8-3 win at Safeco Field. That was a welcome performance after the Nationals plated nine runs while hitting .225 in their previous three.
