Werth went 1-for-4 with another home run Wednesday, his 20th of the year and fourth in the last six games.

EDGE Analysis

Werth is hitting just .251 for the Nationals on the season, but continues to bat second in the lineup, behind rookie phenom Trea Turner and in front of sluggers Daniel Murphy and Bryce Harper. As a result, he's scored 72 runs on the season, and continues to see lots of opportunities to score and drive in runs.

Werth went 2-for-5 with an RBI double, solo homer and two runs in Friday's 8-5 victory over the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran slugger got the scoring started on the night with a 407-foot solo shot in the first and then added a run-scoring two-bagger in the seventh that plated Trea Turner. Werth now has homers in consecutive games and six round-trippers overall in August, his highest monthly total in that category this season.

Werth went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and scored twice in Thursday's game against the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

Werth's fourth-inning blast provided all the offense Max Scherzer and the Nats would need in Thursday's shutout victory. The veteran's homer was his fifth in August, the most longballs he's hit in any month this season. Despite his game-winning drive, Werth is still just 3-for-20 over his last six games, dropping his batting average to .251 through 411 at-bats this year.

Werth is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

Werth saw a 46-game on-base streak end Friday and went 3-for-16 over his last four games, so manager Dusty Baker decided to hold the veteran Werth out for the second Sunday in a row. Chris Heisey will get the start in left field in Werth's place.
