Both teams send pitchers with 8-10 records and ERAs above five to the mound.

Washington turns to Tony Armas (8-10, 5.23), who is 0-2 with a 10.32 ERA in his last three outings. He's been knocked out before the end of the fourth inning twice in that stretch.

The right-hander is 2-1 with a 7.80 ERA in four career starts at Coors Field. Armas is 6-7 with a 5.57 ERA in 13 road starts this season.

Rockies first baseman Todd Helton is 6-for-10 in his career against Armas.

Colorado starter Byung-Hyun Kim (8-10, 5.35) ended a personal four-game losing streak by beating the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday. Kim gave up two runs and eight hits over 6 2-3 innings in a 12-5 win for his first victory since Aug. 2.

The right-hander turned in one of his worst starts of the year against Washington on June 14, when he was tagged for eight runs and nine hits over 3 1-3 innings in a 14-6 loss.

Kim has pitched his best ball at home this season, going 5-4 with a 3.75 ERA at Coors Field.

Soriano has two singles in six career at-bats against Kim.

I don't get MASN until 9/11.  And there are a few more areas that don't get it until September 15.  No one is going to be watching the Nats on 9/11 though, the Redskins begin the season at home on MNF that same night!!

Nick leaves his bat on his shoulder.  The Nats leave Soriano standing on third.   :?

Kim striking out the side, all on three pitches.  We need to get Kim early in the count.

Can someone tell me why the heck Helton is batting second?  Isn't he a superstar slugger?
