Washington Nationals vs. Colorado Rockies Preview
The Rockies have won 2 straight and 7 of their last 10 and now they only are 1 game back of the Arizona Diamondbacks in the NL West. The Nationals are slumping losers of 6 of their last 10 games and while they are still in 2nd place in the NL East they trail the Atlanta Braves by 7 games. MLB lines have the Rockies as the big home favorite with a total of 11 runs.
In yesterday’s game the Rockies beat the Nationals 8-3.
On the season the Nationals have an Over/Under record of 32-27 and a run-line W/L record of 25-38 and the Rockies have an Over/Under record of 35-28 and a run-line W/L record of 32-33.
This season the Rockies are 21-14 at home and the Nationals are 13-19 on the road.
The Rockies are 19-8 in their last 27 home games against the Nationals.
Ross Ohlendorf (0-0 0.00) goes for the Nationals tonight and his last start was last season when he was with the San Diego Padres. He was recently recalled from AAA and last season with the Padres he was 4-4 with an ERA of 7.77 in 9 starts.
Jorge De La Rosa (7-3 3.38 ERA) goes for the Rockies and he had his streak of several solid starts in his last one where he gave up 4 earned runs in 5 innings in a no decision facing the San Diego Padres.
De La Rosa is 5-0 in his last 7 starts, which Colorado has won all 7.
Ohlendorf is 1-1 with a 5.00 ERA over 6 career starts against Colorado.
Colorado’s Troy Tulowitzki is swinging a hot bat hitting .444 in his last 13 games.
The Nationals may need a good start from Ohlendorf, as their offense has struggled all season and they only rank 29th in the Majors in runs and 28th in team batting average. He has his work cut out for him facing a Colorado offense that ranks 3rd in runs.
In some betting trends for this National League match up the Nationals are 1-5 in their last 6 road games, 1-5 in their last 6 vs. a team with a winning record, and they have an Under record of 3-1-1 in their last 5 road games.
The Rockies are 5-2 in their last 7 overall, 38-13 in De La Rosas last 51 home starts, and they have an Over record of 5-1-1 in their last 7 games.
The Rockies are 4-0 in De La Rosas last 4 starts against the Nationals.
Jason’s Pick: I think De La Rosa will get back in the W column tonight, as the Rockies’ offense will get to Ohlendorf.
