Game 10 lineups: Nats at Rockies

DENVER – Would you believe the Nationals have pitched much better at Coors Field than they did at Nationals Park? That’s certainly been the case for their starters, who have allowed a grand total of five runs in 17 1/3 innings through the first three games of this series, good for a 2.60 ERA. The only reason they’re 2-1 instead of 3-0 is a complete lack of offense in Thursday’s opener.

Can they expect Chad Kuhl to keep the trend going today in the finale? That may be a tough ask. Kuhl had a rough time in his season debut Tuesday against the Rays, giving up four runs in five innings (though all of the damage came in the first and second, and he didn’t allow a hit after that). This is a homecoming for Kuhl, who pitched for the Rockies last season. His numbers at Coors Field: 5.04 ERA, 1.399 WHIP in 12 starts. (Though it must be noted he also shut out the Dodgers here, so it’s not like he hasn’t had some success in the thin air.)

A Nationals lineup that has exploded for 17 runs the last two nights goes up against an unfamiliar foe today in Ryan Feltner. The 26-year-old right-hander owns a career 4-11 record, 6.31 ERA and 1.477 WHIP in 23 games with the Rockies over the last three years.
