Diamondbacks-Nationals Preview

(AP) -- With their NL East lead virtually erased, the Washington Nationals will try to begin their turnaround by continuing their recent dominance of the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Doug Fister will try to provide a boost Monday night by winning back-to-back starts for the first time this season, but the slumping Nationals lineup will have to face a pitcher seeking to open his career with three straight wins.

Washington's advantage over New York in the division is down to less than half a percentage point after a three-game sweep at Citi Field this weekend. Jordan Zimmermann gave up three homers in one inning in a 5-2 defeat Sunday, the Nationals' 10th in 15 games.
