The Nationals will try to perk him up by starting their 10-game road trip to Colorado, Chicago and Philadelphia with a victory. Ross Detwiler is on the mound, making the second start of the season. Esmil Rogers, taking the traded Ubaldo Jimenez’s spot in the rotation, will pitch for the Rockies. He’ll take to the mound the very strange line of 4-1, 7.31 ERA.

Earlier this season, the Nationals lost a series in Washington to the Rockies, two games to one. As always, talk about the game right here.
