Beyond that, the Nationals offense ranked fifth in the NL in batting average (.253) and slugging percentage (.393), and fourth in home runs (152) and OPS (.714).
The Giants, meanwhile, are coming off an impressive win in the NL Wild Card Game, as they defeated the Pirates 8-0 behind a four-hit shutout from Madison Bumgarner.
