Nationals send Cole to mound after clinching division

PITTSBURGH -- It probably wasn't meant to be a state secret. More like leaving their options open and deciding as they went depending on circumstances such as the state of the standings.

So it wasn't until late Saturday night that the Washington Nationals announced A.J. Cole as their starter for Sunday's series finale at Pittsburgh. The Pirates waited until Friday to announce a starter and then switched to Tyler Glasnow later that night.

Washington manager Dusty Baker had been waiting to see whether his club clinched the National League East title. The Nationals did, with a 6-1 win Saturday night coupled with a New York Mets loss.
