Nationals Vs. Rockies Final Score: Washington Pounds Colorado, 11-5

The Washington Nationals jumped out to an early lead on the Colorado Rockies and continued to pour on the runs through the game. The Nats ended the third inning with and 8-0 lead over the Rockies. Colorado added a run in the third inning on a Marco Scutaro RBI single to right field, but that was about all the offense the Rockies mounted.

The Nats wound up adding three more runs on the night, pushing their lead to 11-1 and scoring double-digit runs for the second game in a row. Ryan Zimmerman picked up his third RBI of the night with a double to right field to knock in Bryce Harper while Mark DeRosa knocked in an RBI with a sacrifice fly.

The Rockies were able to add two more runs in the bottom of the eighth inning and another two runs in the ninth to cut into the lead, but it wasn't nearly enough and the rally was cut short.

While the Washington offense pounded the Rockies pitching staff, the Nats pitching staff did a great job of shutting down the Colorado offense. Jordan Zimmerman gave up eight hits on the night through seven innings of work, picking up his fourth win of the season.
