Colorado Rockies vs Washington Nationals Prediction

DJ Herz still has some showing and proving to do with just three career starts under his belt, but it probably doesn’t matter much. Dakota Hudson hasn’t been great this season and the Rockies don’t have success when he pitches. The Colorado Rockies are also a bad baseball team that shouldn’t be backed much. The Nationals have hovered around a .500 record all season, and this series is a chance to gain some ground. The Rockies are awful, and getting a cheap price to fade them makes sense to me. Give me the Nats and the cheap price.
