DC might be the place Stanton finds stroke
WASHINGTON -- Right fielder Giancarlo Stanton hit 34 homers in 2011, and 22 the season before, but he's still looking for his first of 2012.

Nationals Park could be the place to help him find his power stroke once more.

Stanton entered Friday's series opener with eight homers and 16 RBIs in 15 games at Nationals Park. Those are his best power numbers on the road. He's gotten three homers in several other parks, but nothing close to the six in D.C.

Overall in Washington, Stanton has posted a .410 average (25-for-61) and a .934 slugging percentage with a 1.405 OPS. Those also are his top marks away from Miami -- in a minimum of six games.

In addition, he entered Friday with a five-game hitting streak at Nationals Park.
