It’s certainly a surprise to most people that the Washington Nationals are at the top of the ultra-competitive National League East in late-June. The dominance of the pitching staff has allowed the Nationals to win a lot of close games this year. Colorado is having a surprisingly terrible season thus far. The Rockies are 14 games out of first place in the NL West. Let’s take a closer look at this matchup.

Jordan Zimmerman doesn’t get a ton of hype in the media, but he is a very solid pitcher for the Nationals. Zimmerman hasn’t gotten any run support this year. He is just 3-6 despite a brilliant 2.89 ERA. Can the Nationals provide some him with some run support at Coors Field? Bryce Harper has been a big contributor in his rookie season with Washington. Ian Desmond and Adam Laroche are both hitting for more power this year. Ryan Zimmerman is batting just .224, and the team needs more from him as the season moves along. The Nationals pitching staff leads the majors with a spectacular 2.98 ERA.

Colorado is still piling up the runs, but their pitching staff is so terrible that they haven’t been able to win consistently in 2012. The Rockies have a team ERA of 5.29, which is easily the worst mark in the majors. Josh Outman is 0-3 with an 8.64 ERA so far this season. Carlos Gonzalez is batting .327 with 17 homers and 53 RBI’s. Dexter Fowler started the season in a major slump, but he has been red hot over the last month. Fowler is becoming more of a power hitter, and he still has terrific speed as well. The absence of Troy Tulowitzki hurts this offense quite a bit. Tulowitzki will be out several more weeks with a severe groin injury. The Rockies simply have to outscore the opposition to win games right now.

Zimmerman gives the Nationals a major pitching advantage here. Look for Washington to actually give him some run support here and allow him to pick up a win.
