Preview

The Washington Nationals and the Colorado Rockies will play the 2nd game of the series at the Nationals Park on Friday. The Nationals took the win 7-3 in the first of the series.

Colorado Rockies

The Rockies get here with a 20-24 record and have lost 4 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 4.6 runs while allowing 5.37 runs per game. CJ Cron leads the team with 12 home runs, 34 RBI and batting for a .319 AVG.

Chad Khul leads the pitching staff with a 3.67 ERA, 31 strikeouts and 3 wins for the Rockies.

Probable Pitcher: 

Austin Gomber (2-4, 4.11 ERA) will start for the Rockies in the 2nd game of the series. Gomber took the loss, allowing two runs on seven hits while striking out two over seven innings in a 2-0 defeat Sunday against the Mets. In his last start against the Nats he allowed 2 runs and struck out 6 across 6.2 innings.

Washington Nationals

The Nationals get here with a 16-30 record and have won 3 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 3.8 runs per game but allowing 5.2 runs. Josh Bell has a batting average of .296, 4 home runs and 25 RBI. Juan Soto leads the team in home runs with 8.

Corbin gave up seven hits, struck out three and walked two, lowering his ERA from 6.60 to 6.30..

Probable Pitcher: 

Aaron Sanchez (3-3, 7.16 ERA) will start for the Nats in the 1st game of the series. Corbin took the loss in Saturday's 5-1 defeat at the hands of the Brewers, allowing five runs on eight hits and one walk with three strikeouts in five innings. He got pounded in his last start against the Rockies as he allowed 6 runs in 4.1 innings.

BETTING TRENDS

Colorado are 4-2 SU in their last 6 games against Washington.

Colorado are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games on the road.

Washington are 7-13 SU in their last 20 games.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Washington's last 5 games against Colorado.

Prediction

The Rockies continue to struggle on the road as they have lost 7 of their last 8 games but they'll face Aaron Sanchez and they pounded him earlier in the season. The Rockies scored 9 runs on that game and beat the Nats. On the other hand Austin Gomber has good numbers against the Nationals so expect the Rockies to bounce back and tie this series. 

PICK: Rockies ML (-108)
