Nationals-Phillies Preview

(AP) -- Citizens Bank Park might not seem like a good place for Max Scherzer to forget his troubles with the long ball. Yet, he always dominates the Philadelphia Phillies regardless of venue, and they haven't shown much power in their hitter-friendly park.

The Washington Nationals sure have, in particular Bryce Harper, but there's a good chance he will remain in the dugout Wednesday night when Scherzer looks to pitch them to a three-game sweep.

Washington (31-21) didn't miss Harper on Tuesday, collecting four homers in a 5-1 victory. The reigning NL MVP was out with a right knee bruise suffered when he was hit by Jeremy Hellickson's fastball in a 4-3 win Monday.
