Colorado Rockies game no. 45 thread: Austin Gomber vs Aaron Sanchez

The Rockies will look to win a game if they can figure out their defense and find some offense in the nation’s capital.

Are you ready for game two of this four-game set in the nation’s capital? After a weather delay last night, the Rockies will play a doubleheader against the Nationals today.

Austin Gomber (2-4, 4.11 ERA) will take the mound for the Colorado Rockies in the top half in hopes of winning a game in Washington DC. He stands a chance if the defensive woes stop and he is supported by both the defense and offense.

In game one of this series on Thursday, the Rockies had one error and were only able to score three runs on eight hits. Team RISP was 1-for-9, which is something that needs to be addressed. The Nationals scored seven runs on nine hits but were 4-for-10 with RISP.

Aaron Sanchez (3-3, 7.16 ERA) will take the helm for the Washington Nationals. Sanchez has only 13 strikeouts compared to Gomber’s 34, but Sanchez has only pitched in 27 23 innings compared to Gomber’s 46 innings.

Let’s see if the Rockies can even up the series this morning!
