Nationals-Braves Preview

(AP) -- The Washington Nationals are hopeful Max Scherzer will only have to miss one start, but even one turn in the rotation may be crucial for a club that has dug itself an early hole in the standings.

They'll now turn to A.J. Cole, making his big league debut in Scherzer's place, to help put an end to their losing streak Tuesday night against the Atlanta Braves at Turner Field.

Scherzer is having his start skipped because of a sprained right thumb suffered during an at-bat against St. Louis on Thursday. Manager Matt Williams is hopeful the Nationals' $210 million man can pitch within a few days.
