Drew Pomeranz finally looks to be meeting some of that hype that preceded him when he was traded to Colorado for Ubaldo Jimenez.
Over 6 innings of work and 81 pitches, Pomeranz held the Nationals to 1 hit and 2 walks while striking out 6 batters.
Tyler Colvin went 3-for-4 while almost going 4-for-4 with 3 bombs. Instead, he only hit 2 bombs and a single, notching 3 runs in the Rockies' total.
Rex Brothers had a real scary 9th, allowing a solo homer to Ryan Zimmerman and a couple of hits after that, but his shaky performance was bookended by the usual excellence we've come to expect out of Rafael Betancourt and Matt Belisle.
Outside of Colvin, Carlos Gonzalez, Dexter Fowler, and Johnny Herrera all had 2 hits.
Strasburg's final line was 6 innings, 8 hits, 3 runs (2ER), 2 HR (both to Colvin), 6 strikeouts and a walk.
That's 2 openers against Strasburg, and 2 wins for the Rockies. Nice work, team!
