Nationals-Cardinals Preview

(AP) -- Joe Ross insists he's moved past the only thing that has slowed him down this season. Now he'll try to lead the Washington Nationals to a rare series win at Busch Stadium.

The right-hander hopes to pick up where he left off as he returns to the rotation Saturday when the Nationals seek their first back-to-back road wins against the St. Louis Cardinals in the same season since the franchise moved to Washington.

Ross (2-0, 0.54 ERA) was nearly unhittable while winning his first two starts but was forced to leave his outing April 20 after two innings because of a blister on his middle finger.
