The Nationals return home after a six-game road trip with their biggest division lead of the season. The Pirates are without Nationals-killer Andrew McCutchen, who is on the disabled list. He has a career .367/.435/.750 with 13 home runs in 34 games against the Nationals. Michael A. Taylor is in right field while Jayson Werth continues to rest his right shoulder.
