Score: 7 - 1
Money Line: +112 Colorado
The Washington Nationals host the Colorado Rockies on Saturday afternoon in game three of a four-game set. Washington won game three in the series on Friday, 2-1.
This game features a pitching match we witnessed just 11 days ago. There were no surprises in that game as Jhoulys Chacin easily outdueled Dan Haren, who gave up five runs over five innings of work.
Chacin has been solid on the road in his career, posting a career road ERA of 3.00 with a 1.29 WHIP. Over the last two seasons Chacin has posted a road ERA of 2.70.
Dan Haren counters for the Nationals. He’s had a very rocky debut with the Nationals, posting a 5.72 ERA in 14 starts. The Nationals are 4-10 in those games.
Haren has been even worse in his last three starts, posting an 8.40 ERA with a 1.73 WHIP, allowing opposing batters to hit at a .338 clip.
The Haren’s troubles extend even farther back than that. The Nationals are 0-7 in his last seven starts. Haren recorded a 6.25 ERA in those games.
Rockies outfielder Michael Cuddyer holds baseball’s longest active hitting streak at 19 games.
The Rockies are 12-5 in their last 17 games in Washington. Take Colorado.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
