The MLB is back in action on Saturday as the Washington Nationals will clash with the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado. This is the second game of a three-game series. The Nationals will give the nod to Stephen Strasburg and he will be opposed by Jonh Gray.
Washington Nationals Form
The Nationals had a poor season. They were not able to show the performances that were expected. They will not take a part of the postseason this year and that is a big blow for them. However, they have been playing well lately and they can be a spoiler in the final part of the season.
The Nationals have averaged 4.46 runs per game and has allowed 3.85 runs per game on the road for the year so far. On the offensive side of the game, the Nationals are placed on the 8th place in scoring putting an average of 4.74 runs per game.

Colorado Rockies Form
The Rockies had a good season so far and they are on the top spot in the National League West. As the things stand at the moment, they will secure a wildcard for the postseason.
The Rockies have averaged 5.46 runs per game and have allowed 5.00 runs per game here at home for the year. Colorado is placed on the 7th spot in the league in scoring at 4.77 ERA and 20th spot in ERA at 4.33 ERA. The Rockies are on the 11th spot in the league in homers with a total of 201.

The Nationals does not much to play for. They still have the ability to be a spoiler in these final games of the regular season but it will be hard against the Rockies for them. On the other side, the Rockies are the better team and they need to win this game in order to secure a wildcard for the postseason.
