Braves-Nationals Preview

(AP) -- In dire need of momentum to become a factor in the NL East, the Washington Nationals' remaining schedule presents that opportunity.

Losing Bryce Harper, however, would make that very difficult.

After avoiding being swept by the best team in baseball, the Nationals may be without their best hitter as they try to capitalize on a four-game series with the spiraling Atlanta Braves on Thursday night.
