Hitting highlight: The Nats nearly came back in the eighth inning with four runs in the frame. Steve Lombardozzi and Denard Span started things off with a pair of singles and Jeff Kobernus then walked to load the bases. A Ryan Zimmerman single and Jhonatan Solano double brought home four runners to make it a one run game. That one run, however, held up for the Rockies.
Pitching lowlight: Detwiler gave up nine total hits, a walk, and two home runs to the Rockies. He left with two outs in the fourth inning after giving up three runs off a slew of singles.
Key stat: After Detwiler's rough outing, Nats starting pitchers have allowed 56 earned runs in 113 2/3 innings (20 total games) in the month of June. That's good enough for a 4.43 ERA.
Up next: The Nationals have Monday off before the Arizona Diamondbacks come to town for a three-game series beginning Tuesday.
