    Thumbs up Tuesday, April 25th Nationals 15, Rockies 12

    Despite a 66 minute rain delay at the start of the game, some continuing drizzle and cold temperatures more fitting of football season, the weather did not douse the offensive fireworks as the Washington Nationals manage to hang on and defeat the Colorado Rockies by a score of 15 - 12. Washington's Trea Turner hit for the cycle for just the third time in Nationals history and drove in 7 of the Nationals 15 runs.

    The night was not a good one for pitchers with the Nationals sending 6 hurlers to the mound, the Rockies 5.

    Joe Ross got the start for Washington, working 4.2 innings, giving up 7 hits (Including 2 home runs), 5 runs, walking 2 and striking out 2. Enny Romero would pick up the win, his record now 2 - 1, working 1.1 innings and giving up 1 hit. For Colorado, German Marquez gets the start and the loss having given up 9 hits and 8 runs in just 4 innings. Marquez would walk 3 and strike out 2.

    Despite the relative cold, bats were hot - Washington got doubles from Trea Turner, Bryce Harper and Ryan Zimmerman, triples from Turner and Daniel Murphy (Who had 5 RBIs for the evening) and the Turner home run. The Rockies bats were hot as well with 5 doubles coming from the bats of DJ LeMahieu, Nolan Arenado, Pat Valaika, Tony Wolters and Alexi Amarista and 4 home runs courtesy Charlie Blackmon, Carlos González, Mark Reynolds and Gerardo Parra.

    Nationals note: In case you were wondering, the other Nationals who have hit for the cycle are Brad Wilkerson in 2005 and Cristian Guzman in 2008.

    The final line: Washington 15 runs, 14 hits, 0 errors, Colorado 12 runs, 15 hits, 2 errors

    Next game: Wednesday, April 26th vs the Rockies in Colorado, game time 8:40PM EDT
