LaHair pinch-hits, slated to start Sunday
CHICAGO -- Cubs first baseman Bryan LaHair, sidelined for one week with tightness in his back, pinch-hit on Saturday and is expected to start Sunday in the series finale against the Nationals.

LaHair, who popped up in only at-bat Saturday, got treatment on Friday, an off-day, and has been able to hit off a batting tee.

"If everything goes good like it did [Friday] -- he's feeling great today -- he'll be in the lineup tomorrow," manager Dale Sveum said Saturday.

Jeff Baker started at first on Saturday for the second straight game.
