Nationals-Indians lineups (Strasburg returns, Cedeno back to Syracuse)

It’s a Father’s Day special at Progressive Field, as the Nationals seek their third straight series win. Last night, the Nationals come back to beat the Indians 7-6 on the first major league home run by Anthony Rendon.

Sunday is special in many ways, but for the Nationals, the top return of Stephen Strasburg (3-5, 2.54 ERA) is at the top of the list. Xavier Cedeno was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse to make room on the 25-man roster.

The Indians counter with Corey Kluber (4-4, 4.08 ERA)
