The Washington Nationals dropped their first game in Colorado, but pulled out a 6-3 win Tuesday night behind Patrick Corbin and Victor Robles.
Here's the latest Nats and Rockies news.
Anthony Rendon (elbow) remained out of the Nats lineup Tuesday after getting hit by a pitch over the weekend in Miami. While it was the third-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.
Starting pitcher Patrick Corbin tossed another quality start, going six innings and allowing two earned runs. He struck out six and walked just one.
Outfielder Victor Robles had a nice day in his third straight game hitting out of the second spot in the order, going 2-for-5 and driving in three runs early.
Infielder Ryan McMahon was the only Rockie to muster multiple hits Tuesday night, going 2-for-4 with a run scored.
Outfielder Raimel Tapia hit a home run in his second straight at-bat, driving in two runs in the second inning to give the Rockies and early lead.
Jeff Hoffman scuffled through five innings, allowing four runs. He gave up six hits, though he also struck out six while walking none.
