Shane’s Free Pick
Runs were hard to come by on Thursday, but Friday is going to be a lot different. Urena was awful in his first start, and the Nationals offense is going to break out in this game. The Nationals are giving up 5.57 runs per game, and that number is going to rise with the Rockies offense. Back the over.
