The Rockies are definitely having a subpar season and they look like as though they’re just spinning their wheels and not making any progress at all. They are 3-7 in the last 10 games and 15 – 21 at home this season. They currently sit 15 games back in the NL West and will start Jeff Francis who is just making his fourth start of the season tonight. Francis has allowed 24 hits in just 13 innings pitched this season so far.
The Nationals have cooled off as of late, but still sit on top of the NL East. They are 21-15 on the road this season and have a three-game lead in their division. The Nationals have been lead on offense by rookie sensation Bryce Harper and they will send their pitching stud to the mound tonight in Stephen Strasburg. Strasburg has won his last six starts in a row and has a 2.46 ERA and has allowed 65 hits in 84 innings of work.
Colorado is 3-14 in their last 17 games overall, 2-9 in their last 11 games against the N.L. East, and 1-4 in Francis’ last five home starts. Washington is 6-1 in their last seven games as a favorite, 7-3 in their last 10 road games, and 20-6 in Strasburg’s last 26 starts. Washington is 6-16 in their last 22 games in Colorado.
