Preview

The Washington Nationals and the Colorado Rockies will play the 4th game of the series at the Nationals Park on Sunday. The Rockies won the second game of the double-header on Saturday but they're 1-2 in the series.

Colorado Rockies

The Rockies get here with a 21-25 record and have lost 3 of their last 4 games. The team is averaging 4.6 runs while allowing 5.5 runs per game. CJ Cron leads the team with 13 home runs, 37 RBI and batting for a .317 AVG.

Chad Kuhl (4-2) gave up two runs on seven hits. He struck out seven and walked one to help the Rockies snap a three-game losing streak.

Probable Pitcher: 

Kyle Freeland (1-4, 4.60 ERA) will start for the Rockies in the 4th game of the series. Freeland did not factor in the decision Tuesday against the Pirates, allowing one run on two hits and two walks over 4.1 innings. He struck out six. In his last 3 starts against the Nats he has 0.49 ERA across 18.2 innings pitched.

Washington Nationals

The Nationals get here with a 17-31 record and have won 3 of their last 4 games. The team is averaging 4 runs per game but allowing 5.2 runs. Josh Bell has a batting average of .296, 4 home runs and 23 RBI. Juan Soto leads the team in home runs with 8.

Joan Adon, who had lost six straight starts, allowed two unearned runs on six hits over six innings..

Probable Pitcher: 

Josiah Gray (4-4, 5.44 ERA) will start for the Nats in the 4th game of the series. Gray (4-4) took the loss Tuesday as the Nationals were downed 9-4 by the Dodgers, surrendering seven runs on five hits -- including three home runs -- and three walks over three innings. In his last 3 starts against the Rockies he has a 6.33 ERA across 14.2 innings.

BETTING TRENDS

Colorado are 5-14 SU in their last 19 games.

Colorado are 3-13 SU in their last 16 games on the road.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of Washington's last 7 games against Colorado.

Washington are 5-15 SU in their last 20 games at home.

Prediction

The Rockies have atruggled on the road as they have lost 14 of 23 games away. They'll send Kyle Freeland to the mound and he has dominated the Nats in his last 3 starts. The Nationals haven't been goos at home as they're winning only the 30% of the time. Gray got pounded in his last start allowing 7 runs so expect the Rockies to get some runs early in the game. Take the Rockies.

PICK: Rockies ML (+100)
