Phillies-Nationals Preview

(AP) -- Despite making a deal to help fill the void left by Ryan Zimmerman, the Washington Nationals are still sorely missing one of their best-ever power hitters.

The Nationals haven't homered since losing Zimmerman, recording the franchise's longest such drought in 23 years, but hope newcomer Asdrubal Cabrera can keep hitting the ball hard Saturday night against the visiting Philadelphia Phillies.

Cabrera was acquired from Cleveland at Thursday's trade deadline to play second base with Anthony Rendon having moved to third since Zimmerman strained his hamstring July 22, an injury that could end his season. Rendon also played third when Zimmerman missed 44 games for a broken thumb.
