(AP) — Dan Haren, much like his Washington Nationals, has used a recent surge to bounce back from a less-than-ideal start.

Facing a Detroit Tigers team he’s had plenty of success against lately could help Washington stay hot.

The Nationals seek a sixth victory in seven tries in the conclusion of a two-game interleague set with the Tigers on Thursday.

Washington (18-15), coming off having the NL’s best record and an NL East title in 2012, dealt with its share of struggles early and carried a sub-.500 record into May.

The Nationals seem to have gotten on track, though, after winning four of five to end a recent road trip before beating Detroit 3-1 on Wednesday. Bryce Harper entered this short series 4 for 29 (.115) over his previous eight games, but his solo homer and sacrifice fly helped back another stellar performance from Jordan Zimmermann.
