Strasburg to start opener; no call on 2

WASHINGTON (AP) Stephen Strasburg will start Game 1 of the NL Division Series for the Washington Nationals against the Chicago Cubs on Friday night.

Manager Dusty Baker named Strasburg his Game 1 starter before his team's workout Thursday. He says the Nationals haven't decided about Games 2 or 3.

Baker says the decision hinges on the status of ace Max Scherzer, who has been dealing with a hamstring injury. Scherzer threw on flat ground in the outfield for almost 15 minutes Wednesday, and Baker says the reigning NL Cy Young Award winner is set to throw a bullpen session later in the day.
