Description: Nationals right fielder Jayson Werth is a career 15-for-41 (.366) hitter with four doubles, three home runs and 11 RBI against Giants starter Tim Hudson.
Insight: Werth has hits in his last four games and sees the ball very well off of Hudson, the Giants probable Friday starter. The outfielder is batting .302 with nine doubles and 12 RBI since the All-Star break but has been lacking in the long ball department as he hasn't gone deep since July 13.
