"We've had some outstanding performances, and we've had some ones that our pitchers are feeling like 'I don't know what's wrong with me.'"

Smoke 'em if you got 'em!
Rockies 10, Nationals 4: Scott Olsen and Tyler Walker get lit up for 10 runs in 3 innings, but at least some lucky Nationals fans got a free T-shirt out of the deal.
Zim (3-5, HR, 2 RBI), Guz (4-5, 1 RBI) provided too little, too late firepower. It was over after 3.
Speaking of firepower: Adam Dunn (0-4) keeps on struggling. Sure, the 14 walks are great, but that .279 SLG ain't gonna cut it. On an unrelated note, Adam Dunn tells the Washington Post there's "nothing going on" with his contract extension.

Our condolences to the family of Keli McGregor, and the Rockies organization.
