Marlins-Nationals Preview

(AP) -- The Washington Nationals have been a worse than average slugging team this season, but that's started to change in late August.

It could be bad news for the Miami Marlins' Brad Hand, who's also going up against an in-form Stephen Strasburg Sunday at Nationals Park.

Washington (65-63) posted a .392 slugging percentage and 0.99 home runs per game through Aug. 20, which respectively ranked 17th and tied for 12th in the majors. Over the last eight games, however, those numbers are up to .502 and 1.88.
