Diamondbacks-Nationals Preview

(AP) -- The Washington Nationals have so far not allowed a streaking NL East rival to cut into their sizable lead in the division.

That's because the Nationals are close to securing their longest winning stretch in nine seasons and will try to claim that Wednesday night by adding to their recent success against the scuffling Arizona Diamondbacks.

Washington (71-53) has remained six games in front of Atlanta even though the Braves have won five in a row after an 11-3 thumping of Pittsburgh on Tuesday. The Nationals earned their eighth consecutive victory the same night by easily handling Arizona 8-1.
