KEY GAME INFORMATION
WASHINGTON: 2017 97-65, first place, lost to Cubs in NLDS
MANAGER Dave Martinez (first season)
ADDITIONS: 1B-OF Matt Adams, C Miguel Montero, RHP Jeremy Hellickson, RHP Joaquin Benoit, INF Matt Reynolds
SUBTRACTIONS: Manager Dusty Baker, LF Jayson Werth, 1B-LF Adam Lind, C Jose Lobaton, RHP Matt Albers
OUTLOOK: This might be the end of an era at Nationals Park, with Harper eligible to leave as a free agent after the season and General Manager Mike Rizzo's contract set to expire, too. The team has won four NL East titles in the past six years but has zero playoff series victories to show for it. That's why yet another manager (Baker) lost his job, and yet another rookie skipper has been brought in (will Martinez have more success than Matt Williams?). Rizzo has made no secret of the need to start making postseason inroads -- a World Series is the stated goal, and that's certainly not an outrageous aim, given all the talent he's assembled. The lineup remains almost exactly the same, although Werth is gone after playing out his seven-year contract. The rotation and bullpen are also nearly identical to the way they looked at the end of 2017.
SAN FRANCISCO: 2017 64-98, fifth place
MANAGER Bruce Bochy (12th season)
ADDITIONS: 3B Evan Longoria, OF Andrew McCutchen, OF Austin Jackson, LHP Tony Watson, OF Steven Duggar, OF Gregor Blanco, LHP Derek Holland
SUBTRACTIONS: OF Denard Span, LHP Matt Moore, RHP Matt Cain, SS Christian Arroyo, OF Michael Morse
OUTLOOK: The Giants are coming off their first last-place finish in a decade and their worst season overall since 1985. The talent level was upgraded significantly with trades for Longoria and McCutchen. Those two former All-Stars might be on the downside of their careers -- both are in their 30s -- but they still should add some pop to a lineup that finished last in the majors in home runs, 29th in runs and 29th in on-base percentage. They should also improve a defense that was spotty at best last season, when nothing went right. Getting a healthy season out of Bumgarner is crucial after he was injured in a dirt bike accident last April, but Friday he was hit by a line drive on his pitching hand and will miss the first two months of the season. Cueto is a quality No. 2 starter if he can avoid the blisters that plagued him last year. Samardzija is very durable, but the rest of the rotation isn't nearly as strong. The Giants will also need to adjust to a new coaching staff, with Curt Young replacing longtime pitching coach Dave Righetti, and Alonzo Powell taking over as hitting coach after Hensley Meulens moved to bench coach.
PREVIEW
Giants hope to power way past Nationals
 

SAN FRANCISCO -- The San Francisco Giants hope to continue their power surge against one of the top pitchers in the National League when they go for a series sweep against Max Scherzer and the Washington Nationals on Wednesday afternoon.

Brandon Belt homered for the fifth time in the Giants' last seven games, and Mac Williamson broke a late tie with a solo shot, his third homer in five games, as San Francisco extended its winning streak to a season-best three games with a 4-3 win Tuesday night.

The Nationals have lost three straight, but they've saved their ace, Scherzer, for the series finale when he and Giants righty Jeff Samardzija will duel for just the second time in careers that began 88 days apart in 2008.

Neither Belt nor Williamson has ever homered off Scherzer, but the right-hander with eight career starts against the Giants might expect to see Giants part-timer Pablo Sandoval, who has taken him deep twice in 14 career at-bats.

The game matches a team that's been riding its power hitting against a pitcher who is stingy giving up the long ball.

The Giants have hit at least one home run in each of their last seven games. More than half their runs this season (42 of 74) have been a product of home runs.

Meanwhile, Scherzer has given up just two homers in his five starts, covering 33 innings, this season.

Scherzer (4-1, 1.36 ERA) got the better of Samardzija in their only previous head-to-head, limiting the Giants to five hits and one run in seven innings in a 4-1 win at San Francisco in July of 2016.

The 145-game winner had gone just 3-4 with a 4.17 ERA in his eight career starts against the Giants. He's 2-2 with a 3.38 ERA in four starts in San Francisco.

Scherzer will take the mound riding a personal three-game winning streak. He is coming off a 5-2 win against the Los Angeles Dodgers in which he allowed just one run in six innings.

After starting their nine-game trip with two wins in three games against the New York Mets, the Nationals have slumped badly on offense and watched four well pitched games go to waste.

Frustrations nearly boiled over after Monday's 4-2 loss to the Giants when starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez stormed into manager Dave Martinez's office to complain about having been pulled in the sixth inning of a game the Nationals trailed just 2-1.

But less than 24 hours later, Gonzalez insisted the first-year manager had said all the right things to prevent any lingering bad feelings.

"It's beautiful that our skipper speaks to us," Gonzalez said Tuesday. "It makes a huge difference knowing what's going on. That was a situation that if people keep to themselves, it'd be a different story. Communication. That's all we want. Once we have communication, everything is nice and calm and everything plays out the way it should play out."

Samardzija (1-0, 0.00) was impressive in his delayed season debut last week, shutting out the Los Angeles Angels on two hits for five innings in an 8-1 Giants win.

The 33-year-old had missed the start of the season because of a pectoral strain suffered late in spring training.

He is just 2-7 with a 4.07 ERA in 16 career games (nine starts) against the Nationals. Samardzija was 0-2 with a 5.40 ERA in two starts against Washington last year.
