The Washington Nationals battle the Colorado Rockies in game two of Sunday’s MLB doubleheader.
The Colorado Rockies are battling NL West rival Arizona for second in the division and also for the first Wild Card. The Rockies appear to be a sure thing for a Wild Card as they have faded from challenging the Los Angeles Dodgers for supremacy in the division. The Rockies went through a stretch before the All Star break where nothing went right and team slumped badly where neither the arms or the bats could carry the team. Colorado has rebounded but now the team is battling Arizona for the first Wild Card and the home field advantage. The Colorado Rockies have not named a starter for game two of their doubleheader versus Washington so please check back.

The Washington Nationals have not let up despite a few injuries that could hurt the team in the long run. The Nationals possess a sizeable lead in the National League East and will capture the division crown once again unless the team falls off a cliff. Having said that, the Nats do have some worries along the injury front with Stephen Strasberg, Joe Ross, Trea Turner and Jason Werth on the disabled list. The Nationals haven’t missed a beat the past few weeks with bot the arms and bats contributing but if injuries mount the postseason might be where the ride ends quickly. The Washington Nationals send newly acquired Edwin Jackson to the bump to oppose the Colorado Rockies. Jackson comes off of an 8-0 defeat to the Milwaukee Brewers where he was charged with seven runs (three earned) in five frames.
The over is 10-2 in Colorado last 12 overall and the over is 10-2 in Colorado last 12 on grass while Colorado are 5-16 in their last 21 road games. Washington are 4-1 in their last 5 overall and Washington are 4-1 in their last 5 home games versus a team with a winning road record while Washington are 11-3 in their last 14 versus the NL West. The over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
The Colorado Rockies have listed Jon Gray as the starter but this is pick your poision in my view...
