Padres-Nationals preview (The Associated Press)

The Washington Nationals have struggled at the plate for the past week. Perhaps facing Christian Friedrich could break the first-place team out of its funk. Friedrich will start in the series finale on Sunday at Nationals Park and he will try to turn around a rough trend for him against Washington.

Stanton homers to help Fernandez and Marlins beat Mets, 7-2 (The Associated Press)

When Giancarlo Stanton reached the dugout after hitting a majestic go-ahead homer Saturday night, Jose Fernandez greeted him with a grin and a flurry of punches to the chest, one slugger pounding on another. Stanton homered and had his first four-hit game since 2012, driving in three runs to give Fernandez all the support he needed, and the Miami Marlins beat the New York Mets 7-2. Miami rocked Jacob deGrom (6-5), who allowed 10 hits and five runs, both season highs, and lasted just 3 2/3 innings in his shortest outing since August.

Baseball-Major League Baseball roundup (Reuters)

For the last three days, thousands of fans adorned in the hats and shirts of the Seattle Mariners and New York Mets have descended upon Cooperstown, N.Y., to celebrate the induction of Ken Griffey Jr. and Mike Piazza into the Hall of Fame. The two men will be officially enshrined Sunday afternoon at the Clark Sports Center. Griffey will be the first inductee to wear a Mariners hat into the Hall of Fame, though the Hall considers Randy Johnson -- who went in last year wearing the cap of the Arizona Diamondbacks -- to represent the Mariners because he pitched more games for Seattle.

Closing in on 3,000 hits, Suzuki is on the upswing at age 42 (The Associated Press)

Closing in on 3,000 hits, Ichiro Suzuki isn't inclined to stop there. ''Probably not,'' says New York Mets manager Terry Collins, who managed in Japan and is a friend of Suzuki's. ''I'll tell you one thing about the Japanese - they don't kid. It's hard to argue against Suzuki's chances, given this year's upswing in his career as a fourth outfielder for the Miami Marlins.

Padres-Nationals preview (The Associated Press)

Nationals Park is very familiar to San Diego's Edwin Jackson, who is slated to start here on Saturday against the Washington Nationals. The veteran right-hander has perhaps discovered the fountain of youth as he took a no-hitter into the seventh inning of his start on Sunday against the San Francisco Giants. It was his first appearance with the Padres this season after he was signed by the team last month.
