The Nationals go into Colorado to take on the Rockies at Coors Field Monday night.
The Nationals are playing well, winning eight of their last 11 games.
The Rockies have not played well lately, they’ve lost eight of their last 10 games.
Max Scherzer is on the mound for the Nationals, he’s 12-7 with a 2.80 ERA and 0.91 WHIP! The Rockies are starting De La Rosa, he’s 7-7 with a 5.25 ERA and 1.59 WHIP.
The Nationals have been scoring in bunches, they’ve scored 17 runs over their last three games.
They’ve scored five or more runs in seven of their last 10 games as well. So they are really hitting well like they have all season averaging 4.7 runs per game.
Washington also has 152 homeruns on the season, which is fifth best in the MLB.
Max Scherzer has been absolutely incredible, his 0.91 WHIP is absolutely outstanding.
He has not allowed more than three ones in any outing since June 24th and allowed three just once.
All other outings have been outstanding. His last outing he gave up two over seven innings. He’s allowed 1 or less in six of his last nine starts!
The Rockies have one of the top offenses in the league, especially at home.
They’ve scored 5.2 runs per game this year and that ranks second in the MLB.
They’ve hit just four less homeruns than the Nationals with 148.
Despite losing quite frequently lately, they’ve been scoring. Over their last three games alone they’ve generated 21 runs and won only one of those games.
Jorge De La Rosa has had four quality starts in a row, giving up just eight runs over 23.1 innings.
His ERA and WHIP is still quite high mainly inflated because of their hitter friendly park but as you can see he’s been pretty good lately.
He doesn’t go too deep into games so their bullpen come into play big time and they aren’t that great overall.
