Rockies Vs. Nationals Score Update: Washington Leads 2-1

The Colorado Rockies are trailing 2-1 to the Washington Nationals through six innings of play on Sunday afternoon as they look to take the rubber match of the three-game series. Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann had allowed just three hits so far but Jeremy Guthrie has pitched nearly as well in keeping the game close.

Making his second start since returning to the rotation, Guthrie has allowed just two runs on six hits over the first six frames. Both of the runs came on one key mistake, too, when All Star shortstop Ian Desmond smacked his 17th homer of the season to give the Nationals the lead.

In addition to his homer, Desmond has also reached on error and stolen a base. Rockies catcher Wil Nieves hit the sacrifice fly that initially gave Colorado the lead, but he's allowed three stolen bases already and the Nationals have only had seven base-runners.
