Nationals Vs. Rockies: Is A Sunday Win Waiting In The Wings For Colorado?

After Saturday's 15-7 victory, the Colorado Rockies better hope they have some offense left in them on Sunday. They'll need it if they want to avoid their 16th straight loss on Sunday.

Aaron Cook (2-6, 5.34 ERA) will be on the mound for the Rockies in hopes of ending the bleeding on Sundays. Cook had a bit of a regression against the Phillies in his last start. Before that, Cook came up with seven scoreless innings against the Dodgers on the road. Against the Phillies in Colorado, Cook managed just four innings and allowed four runs on five hits. He is 0-2 on Sunday this season.

John Lannan (8-7, 3.65 ERA) pitched against the Rockies back in July during their series in Washington. However, Lannan's start was cut short due to a batted ball to his face. He left in the fourth inning, but the impact did not cause any serious injury. He defeated Atlanta in his last start, allowing three runs on nine hits in 6-2/3 innings. He struck out eight.

First pitch is scheduled for 1:10 p.m. MT.
