Nationals-Cubs Preview

(AP) -- Dusty Baker is returning to Wrigley Field having led the Washington Nationals to the verge of the best start in franchise history.

His former Chicago Cubs have raced to their best in more than a century.

The NL's two leading teams will open a four-game series Thursday night, and Washington's Joe Ross will try to provide another stellar outing when he faces a formidable lineup.
