Nationals hope Scherzer can go vs. Padres

It has been a frustrating month for the Washington Nationals, who host the San Diego Padres for a three-game series that starts Friday.

Shortstop Trea Turner is on the injured list with a finger injury, hot-hitting third baseman Anthony Rendon has not started the past four games after getting hit by a pitch in the left arm and ace pitcher Max Scherzer injured his rib cage when a foul ball screamed into the Washington dugout last weekend in Miami.

But the Nationals are hoping Scherzer (1-3, 4.45) can make his start as scheduled on Friday against the Padres, who will send lefty Matt Strahm (0-2, 3.50) to the mound following the best start of his MLB career.
