Series Preview: Rockies @ Nationals

DC Sports Nexus ---- Friday, July 6, 2012

After sweeping one of the hottest teams in baseball, the Nats continue their pre-allstar homestand with a three game series against the Rockies.  It was during the last Colorado series that the Nats discovered their new found offensive firepower.  Here is how it stacks up:
  • Friday: 7:05 PM, Pomeranz (0-3) vs Strasburg (9-3).
  • Saturday: 4:05 PM, Francis (2-1) vs Gonzalez (11-3).
  • Sunday: 1:35 PM, Guthrie (3-8) vs Zimmermann (5-6).
Game of the Series: Friday.  You know Strasburg is going to be motivated after seeing the team lose during his last two starts.

Sound of the Series:  Buster Poindexter's Hot Hot Hot seems like a pretty good song to describe how the Nats have been playing of late.  Also the weather...I saw it was going to be 106 on Saturday.

Prediction Time:
Putting my reputation as a "baseball guy" on the line by predicting the outcomes of each series.  Feel free to yell at me in the comments or on twitter @dru90. 

  • Nationals WIN Friday.
  • Nationals WIN Saturday.
  • Nationals WIN Sunday.
The Nationals SWEEP the Series 3-0.
