The Washington Nationals dropped their first of three games against the Colorado Rockies, 7-5 Monday night.
Here's the latest Nats and Rockies news.
Anthony Rendon (elbow) remained out of the Nats lineup Monday after getting hit by a pitch over the weekend in Miami. While it was the second-straight game he's missed, he could be available to pinch-hit soon.
Shortstop Trea Turner has not yet been cleared to throw or hit. Turner has been taking grounders and participating in other baseball activities after fracturing his finger April 2. He is two and a half weeks into his projected 4-6 week rehabilitation.
Max Scherzer is on track to make his scheduled start Friday against the Padres. The starting pitcher tweaked his left intercostal after dodging a foul ball in Sunday's game.
Second baseman Brian Dozier went 1-for-2 with a three-run homer in the Nats' loss Monday. Dozier now has four home runs in a Nat uniform. He was also walked twice, raising his OPS to .669.
Starting pitcher Tyler Anderson allowed five runs over three innings Monday night. Anderson walked three and allowed four hits. He also struck out four. Anderson was eventually pulled after giving up a home run to Brian Dozier in the third with two runners on.
Nolan Arenado went 3-for-4 with a home run, three runs scored and two RBIs Monday. His homer was his 1,000 hit of his MLB career.
Relief pitcher Wade Davis allowed a hit, but didn't give up a run while earning the save in the team's win over the Nats. Despite giving up a double to Ryan Zimmerman in the top of the ninth, the closer got his second save of the season.
Mark Reynolds tied the game 5-5 in the fifth after a two-run shot off of Jeremy Hellickson. The first baseman went 1-for-2 with a two-run homer and two walks.
