German Marquez has been pitching great this year but his home road splits are what you'd expect for a pitcher in colorado. Sanchez is in trouble today and you are hearing it here first. He depends on his curve ball and he's one of those pitchers that has a 8-12 break on his pitch. This never goes well for pitchers who aren't familar with colorado and the altitude. I have a feeling his curves won't break as much and he will leave a lot of hanging curves high in the zone that won't break like he's expecting and the Rockies will take advanatge of this. I expect a ton of runs from the rockies and I'll take them to win as well as over on their team total.60%

Purple Row: Rockies 9, Nationals 5: German Marquez battles and offense carries the day
The Rockies took the series from the Nationals on Wednesday despite a shaky start and finish. Marquez struggled with his command through the first three innings, culminating in a two-run homer by Juan Soto that put the Rockies in a 3-0 whole. In the bottom of the third, the Rockies answered back with 4 runs, 3 of which came on Raimel Tapia's bases-clearing double. With the bases loaded in the 4th, Marquez punched out Adam Eaton to end the threat. He then cruised through the 7th, finishing with 7 strikeouts and 2 walks.
Washington Times: Corbin, Robles lead Nationals to win over Rockies
DENVER -- Patrick Corbin didn't let an early mistake define his latest outing at Coors Field.
Corbin recovered from giving a homer in the second pitch six strong innings, Victor Robles hit a three-run double, and the Washington Nationals beat the Colorado Rockies 6-3 on Tuesday night.
"I knew two runs wasn't going to win the game and I only gave up two early," Corbin said. "I knew our offense was going to put something on the board. It's tough to keep runs off the board in this ballpark generally, so if I just minimized the damage and kept the score where it was, we'd have a good shot to be right back in it.
Denver Post: Rockies clobber the Nationals to win series
Neither shaky early innings from starter German Marquez, nor the hazards of the Tooth Trot could stop the Rockies Wednesday afternoon.
Colorado banged out 12 timely hits -- including a three-hit, three-RBI day from Nolan Arenado and a two-hit, three-RBI performance from Raimel Tapia -- to clobber Washington, 9-5, its eighth win in 10 games.
First baseman Daniel Murphy, rejoining the Rockies after missing 20 games while on the injured list with a broken finger, got a hit in his first at-bat. Murphy, however, barely escaped a collision with "Toothy the Tooth" as he came out of the dugout to take the field at the beginning of the sixth inning.
Federal Baseball: Washington's Nationals dropped 2 of 3 to Colorado's Rockies with today's 9-5 loss in the series finale in Coors Field.
Anibal Sanchez started strong in the first two innings this afternoon in the series finale in Denver, CO's Coors Field, but then things went all pear-shaped for the right-hander, who gave up four in the third and two more in the fourth as the Colorado Rockies went up 6-3 and went on to a 9-5 win in the third of three with the Washington Nationals.
Sanchez vs the Rockies: Winless in his first four starts with the Nationals, (0-2), with a 4.91 ERA, 11 walks, 17 Ks, and a .256/.337/.422 line against in 22 IP, Anibal Sanchez took the hill this afternoon in Coors Field looking to help Washington to a series win in the three-game set with the Rockies.
Denver Post: Nationals use big third inning to beat Jeff Hoffman, Rockies as Colorado's bats go cold
Learning how to be a starting pitcher at Coors Field is a growth process in dealing with stress tests, as taking the mound at a mile high can produce sideways innings that can undo any hurler.
Tuesday, it was one of those very growing pains that resulted in Washington's 6-3 win over Colorado in LoDo. The Nationals plated four runs in the third inning off just-recalled right-hander Jeff Hoffman, who was making his season debut in place of an injured Kyle Freeland.
Just like in its last defeat, to the Phillies on Saturday, Colorado jumped ahead early as Raimel Tapia energized the crowd.
Purple Row: Nationals 6, Rockies 3: Missed opportunities and a couple bad innings cost Rockies
The Colorado Rockies technically left fewer men on base than the Washington Nationals in their 6-3 loss on Wednesday. You can count the three important times the Rockies had men on and a chance to score. But in a game that was close almost throughout, those missed opportunities felt more glaring, especially for a team that is still spotty on offense.
Called into action for his 2019 debut, the young Hoffman mostly looked just fine. His stuff looked nasty at times, especially when he located his fastball and kept his breaking pitches down.
