Rockies, Nationals Each Look To Get Back On Track With Weekend Series

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 6/19/2013 7:55:32 PM

The Colorado Rockies have fallen off the pace in the National League West. The Washington Nationals are in a similar position in the NL East. Both teams will be looking to get back on track this weekend when they meet in the nation’s capital, with each coming off 10-game sports betting stretches in which they posted sub-.500 records. The Nationals took two of three from Colorado when these teams met in the Rockies last week, and should have an even bigger advantage at home.

It will help that Washington has its best pitching talent lined up for this online betting series, beginning with Jordan Zimmerman on Thursday. The Nationals have won the last three games that Zimmerman has started, and the 27-year old is 9-3 with a 2.44 ERA on the season. Colorado will counter with Roy Oswalt, who signed with the team after opening the year as a free agent. The Rockies were in a desperate position when it came to arms, and it will be interesting to see where Oswalt stands at this point.

It gets a little better for Colorado on Friday with Jhoulys Chacin looking to secure a third-straight win, as he now stands at 5-3 with a 4.26 ERA on the season. The problem is that Washington will counter with Stephen Strasburg, who has posted a 2.50 ERA despite struggling with consistency and posing a 3-6 record to this point. Eventually Strasburg will start to pile up the wins if he keeps pitching the way he has, and the Nationals should be able to score just enough in this online sports betting contest to help him get the win.

The Rockies will enter Saturday’s game looking to just steal one, and they may have their best shot with Jorge De La Rosa on the mound. De La Rosa is 7-4 with a 3.21 ERA, yet Colorado has won the last two games he started even though he gave up just three earned runs over 13.2 innings combined. Washington has now lost seven-straight games with Dan Haren on the mound, and his 5.72 ERA this season won’t scare many opponents.

Jeff Francis is 2-5 with a 6.58 ERA, but the Rockies don’t have many other options to close out this series and will send the 32-year old to the mound. Francis was lit up for eight earned runs in just six innings of work against the Toronto Blue Jays in his last appearance, and while Ross Detwiler has posted an identical 2-5 record this season, his 3.34 ERA is much more respectable and he should be able to close this series out on a strong note for the Nationals.
