Series breakdown: Fresh off a somewhat successful 4-4 road trip, the Nationals return home for a 10-day, 11-game homestand. Fans won’t get to see Ryan Zimmerman try to extend his hitting streak (which was halted at 30 games Wednesday in San Francisco), but the third baseman should get a nice ovation when he steps to the plate for the first time Friday. Saturday’s doubleheader became necessary after an April 15 rainout; tickets from that game are good for the afternoon contest.- Mark Zuckerman
