The Washington Nationals will head out on the road this Wednesday to take on a Colorado Rockies team who performs way better at home than on the road. There may not be any playoff implications in this one, but I expect both teams to come to play with pride on the line.
The Nationals were able to pick up the first game of this series by a score of 5-4, but they are only 1-3 in their last 4 games, so they are not exactly in great form. The one big bright spot for the Nationals has been the fact that Juan Soto has been doing work during the second half of the season, and you can really only see him carrying on this form going into 2022.
Paolo Espino gets the start here for the Nationals and he really has not been all that bad this year with an ERA just a shade over 4 and he has made some improvements lately giving up only 4 runs in his last 3 starts.
He does have to pitch in Coors for this one, so it is tough to project him for a great start, but we may be surprised with Espino’s effort here if he is able to show up with his A-game and keep the ball in play.
The Rockies have been uncharacteristically poor at home in their last 5 games losing all 5 of those contests with many of them being in blow-out fashion, as their bats have not exactly got the job done over that recent stretch of games.
Peter Lambert gets the call to the hill here and he has not been all that good here this year, so it will be interesting to see how he can perform here against a Nationals batting lineup who is struggling themselves.

Free Washington Nationals vs. Colorado Rockies MLB Prediction:
The Colorado Rockies are such a better team at home as opposed to on the road, and they have had to play some awfully tough teams over the last week with series against both the Giants and Dodgers, so I certainly can understand why they are on the losing streak they are on.
At the moment the Rockies are taking about 80% of the total action, so I would not be surprised to see the Rockies close as a bigger favorite, but as it stands right now, they look like a good value at -115 in this home spot.
