Phillies-Nationals Preview

(AP) -- The Washington Nationals' bats have been relatively quiet lately, but it's something Gio Gonzalez has been used to all season.

The Nationals will try to back him with more offense in Thursday night's opener of a four-game home series against the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Nationals (58-47) are among the top-scoring NL teams with 4.2 runs per contest. However, they've managed 14 in their last five games, though they avoided a sweep with a 4-3 win over Miami on Wednesday to conclude a nine-game road trip.
