Nationals-Braves Preview

(AP) -- While they aren't likely to catch the Washington Nationals atop the NL East, the slumping Atlanta Braves are still holding out hope that they can claim a wild-card spot.

Sending Ervin Santana to the mound at Turner Field may help them get back on track.

As the right-hander looks to win his eighth straight decision at home, the Braves will try to continue their success when facing hard-throwing Stephen Strasburg in Monday's opener of a three-game set.
