Washington (31-31, 13-18 road, 32-27 O/U) is hoping to build some momentum after sweeping Minnesota at home in a doubleheader on Sunday. Colorado has won four of their last six games. They take on a Washington team that is hitting just .234, fourth-worst in baseball. Colorado is hitting .269 vs. right-handers and averages 4.95 runs per game overall. Dan Haren (4-7, 5.45 ERA) goes to the mound for the Nationals and he's struggled most of the year. Haren has allowed 12 runs in his last two starts in Colorado. Jhoulys Chacin (3-3, 4.59 ERA) hasn't pitched great as of late but he's facing a Washington team that lacks their best power hitter in Bryce Harper (knee), who is on the DL. In his last two starts against Washington, he's allowed four runs in 12 innings. Colorado hosts Washington from Coors Field at 8:40pmET on Tuesday in Game 1 of a three-game series.
