Reds' Bailey to make season debut against Nationals

WASHINGTON -- Homer Bailey wouldn't go as far to say that he is excited to make his first major league start of the year on Saturday.

"Anxious may be a better word. I'm glad to be back," the Cincinnati right-hander said Friday, sitting in the Reds' clubhouse at Nationals Park.

Bailey is slated take the mound to face the first-place Washington Nationals, who entered Friday leading the National League in hitting (.274), slugging (.472), OPS (.811), homers (110), extra-base hits (268), runs (398) and RBIs (390).
