Unbeaten Strasburg returns as Nationals face Mets

WASHINGTON -- The Washington Nationals are in the position to put some distance between themselves and the New York Mets, who some experts picked to win the National League East Division this season.

But Nationals manager Dusty Baker doesn't expect the Mets, who have been banged up by injuries, to concede so quickly this weekend. New York slugger Yoenis Cespedes went on the 10-day disabled list Friday with a hamstring injury after he was hurt on Thursday against the Atlanta Braves.

"It is going to be a good series and a good fight," Baker said Friday. "They are not going to give up. These guys can definitely pitch."
