Game Preview:

Jason Bergmann (0-1, 6.24 ERA) starts for Washington in the series opener. The right-hander spent the majority of the season in the bullpen and has made four starts since joining the rotation on Aug. 12. This is his first appearance against the Rockies.

Colorado (63-76) lost 2-0 in 11 innings to San Diego on Wednesday, its second loss in three days on a walk-off homer. The Rockies were swept in three games by the Padres, and have lost 14 of their last 18 overall.

''It's tough when you have so many chances and don't take advantage, not even once,'' Colorado's Todd Helton said. ''And our pitchers hold them down all game and we lose.''

Aaron Cook (9-13, 4.15) looks to snap out of a bad stretch when he starts for Colorado. The right-hander has allowed 21 runs - 17 earned - over his last four outings, going 1-3 in that span.

He gave up seven runs and six hits in five innings of a 14-5 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday. The Rockies are just 9-19 when he starts this season.

Cook has a 3.60 ERA in four career appearances, including a start, against the Nationals franchise. He hasn't faced them since 2003 when they were still in Montreal.

The Rockies swept a four-game series with the Nationals at RFK Stadium from June 12-15 in their only meeting so far this season.

Call the Ghostbusters.  Have them on stand-by just in case the Ghost of Jamie Caroll comes back to haunt us again.

We don't have a good track record out west this year, and the first game of a series is particularly tough given the all-night travel.

Hopefully it will be soon  :pray:

Freakin MLB.TV is blacking out commercials as usual, so I have no idea what the status is.

Its just the Dolphins and Steelers, I would watch, but as far as I'm concerned it's not football season yet.

I'm watching that game. Culpeper is looking good. He looked a litlle antsy at first but now hes settling down. Wes Welker made the play of the game so far for Miami . Did you see that cut back he made, #97 for steelers looked like ann a**hole on that replay

I think its important for the Steelers to win their games until Big Ben gets back, that way they dont feel impacted as much by his absence.

Then again, I'm not a Steelers fan, so I really have no clue
