On paper it looks like a pitching mismatch when the Washington Nationals host the Colorado Rockies in the first game of the series on Tuesday night, after the scheduled Monday game was postponed due to storms in the nation's capital.
Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg (12-4, 3.52 ERA) enters having won each of his past five outings. Rockies rookie starter Peter Lambert (2-1, 6.06) is winless in his past five games.
Lambert was slated to pitch Monday. Strasburg moves up to take the spot of Erick Fedde.
