Nationals-Cardinals Preview

(AP) -- If the Washington Nationals are going to make a September push, they're probably going to need Max Scherzer to start pitching like a Cy Young Award candidate again.

The right-hander may be especially motivated to turn things around in his hometown.

Mired in arguably his worst stretch, Scherzer will try to help the Nationals end their road woes Wednesday night in a showdown with Michael Wacha and the St. Louis Cardinals.
