Cardinals-Nationals Preview

(AP) -- Even with Bryce Harper in the lineup, the Washington Nationals have struggled to beat the St. Louis Cardinals of late.

Avoiding an eighth consecutive regular-season loss to the visiting Cardinals might remain tough despite the hobbled Harper's expected return in Thursday night's series opener.

Batting .520 (13 for 25) in his last seven games, Harper was scratched from the lineup before Wednesday's 6-3 win over Miami because of tightness in his left quad. The star outfielder has been dealing with the injury since Friday and also left Monday's 9-2 victory over the Marlins when he slipped running the bases in the seventh inning.
