Nats', Braves' pitchers looking for happy returns to mound

There will be a lot of drama among starting pitchers when the Atlanta Braves and Washington Nationals end their four-game series in the national Sunday night game.

The Braves expect to start Kevin Gausman, who started for Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday and fanned 10 in seven innings while allowing two runs. He was making a rehab start in his recovery from plantar fasciitis in his right foot.

"I've really been pounding the zone with pitches during my rehab," Gausman told MLB.com. "That's the biggest thing with pitches, you're thinking, 'How will they work when I get in the game?' They've been even better in the game. That's encouraging."
