Braves-Nationals Preview

(AP) -- The Washington Nationals are going to have to do without Stephen Strasburg this weekend, but quality of starting pitching hasn't much mattered against the Atlanta Braves.

Tanner Roark takes the mound Friday night at Nationals Park as Atlanta's Julio Teheran tries to put possibly his worst start of the season behind him and end his club's longest losing streak in nine years.

Strasburg's ongoing health issues are pushing Roark (4-4, 4.54 ERA) into the rotation after being recalled from Double-A Harrisburg following Monday's abbreviated start.
