Hitting lowlight: In this game, there weren't many hitting highlights besides a solo home run by Ryan Zimmerman in the ninth inning. The Nats had six total hits, but couldn't get anything in bunches. Their 6-8 hitters (Bernadina, Lombardozzi, and Solano) combined to go 0-for-8. Washington left 11 total batters on base today.
Pitching lowlight: Right from the beginning it was clear Haren was in trouble. He couldn't find the strike zone early and allowed three runs in the first. D.J. LeMahieu got the Rockies started with a solo home run and it was all downhill from there. Haren ended up with seven earned runs in only 3 1/3 innings of work with the two wild pitches and HBP.
Key stat: Haren has allowed 20 earned runs in his last 18 1/3 innings pitched.
Up next: The Nats and Rockies play their series finale on Sunday with a 1:35 p.m. start scheduled. Lefties Ross Detwiler (2-5, 3.34 ERA) and Jorge De La Rosa (7-4, 3.21) are your starters.
