This is a 1* free play on the "under" between the Colorado Rockies and the Washington Nationals on Thursday night (7:05 EST).
Roy Oswalt (0-0, 0.00 ERA) gets the call for the visitors; Oswalt makes his debut after signing with the Rockies in May and making five starts in Double-A where he posted a 2.16 ERA and 0.93 WHIP over his 33 1/3's innings of work. Oswalt will be opposed by Jordan Zimmermann (9-3, 2.44 ERA) who is coming off an outing to forget in which he gave up six runs off eight hits with a walk while striking out six over five innings of work, lucky to escape with a no-decision. Despite the sub-par effort, Zimmermann has of course been as solid as it gets this year and has allowed 13 runs of his last 26 innings of work (note that he's a perfect 6-0 with a minuscule 1.06 ERA in seven starts at Nationals Park). Colorado struggled to put runs on the board in Toronto and faces a buzzsaw in Zimmermann in the first game of this four game set. Oswalt comes into this contest in form; I definitely feel the table is set for these two competent starters to battle into the latter frames and for this one to sneak below the posted number. How about you? Duel or slugfest?
