Series Preview: Nationals @ Rockies

DC Sports Nexus ---- Monday, June 25, 2012

The Nationals are leaving the DC area for a four game series against the Colorado Rockies.  If anything is going to fix our offensive woes, its four games in mile high Coors Field.  Here is how things stack up:
  • Monday: 8:40 PM, Strasburg (9-1) vs Francis (0-1).
  • Tuesday: 8:40 PM, Gonzalez (9-3) vs Friedrich (4-4).
  • Wednesday: 8:40 PM, Zimmermann (3-6) vs Outman (0-3).
  • Thursday: 3:10 PM, Jackson (4-4) vs White (2-5).

Game of the week:  Monday.  I'm personally very interested in how Strasburg will fair in Coors Field.  I also can't wait to see our offense break out against Francis, who has a 8+ ERA.

Sound of the Series:  Comes from Boston this week.  There's no arguing we have been going through a rough patch, but Don't Look Back!

Don't look back, a new day is breakin'...
Forget about the last couple of series.  Forget about not being able to score any runs.

It's been too long since I felt this way...
Let's get that optimistic vibe going strong again.

I don't mind where I get taken, The road is callin', Today is the day!
I certainly don't mind going on the road to face Colorado.  Today is the day our slump is broken!
