Rockies’ Road Woes May Be Cause For Concern

The Colorado Rockies would be one of the best teams in baseball if they could just play all their games at Coors Field. Unfortunately for the Rockies, that’s not an option. The squad is just 27-26 on the road this season, including going 1-7 in its past eight. The Rockies and Washington Nationals will open their shortened set Saturday after the series opener was rained out Friday. 

SHARK BITES
  • The Nationals are 8-2 SU in their last 10 games at home against teams with winning records.
  • The total has gone OVER in the Rockies’ last 4 games against the Nationals.
  • Nolan Arenado is batting .404 with 6 HRs since the all-star break.

The Rockies will start youngster German Marquez, who has been on top of his game during the month of July. The righty has a 3.76 ERA in his past four starts while posting a 9.9 K/9, which is a season high. That being said, Marquez faced the Nationals earlier this season and got tuned up for nine hits and eight runs in four innings.

Nationals pitcher Tanner Roark entered the all-star break slumping but has come out red-hot. In his two outings since the Midsummer Classic, Roark has a 1.38 ERA and has held batters to a measly .146 batting average.
