Ger­man Mar­quez (8-4, 4.20 ERA) at Na­tion­als RHP Tan­ner Roark (8-6, 4.83), 5:05 p.m. Satur­day, AT&T Sport­sNet; 850 AM The Rock­ies rolled over Mar­quez from his sched­uled start Fri­day night to Satur­day af­ter rain scut­tled the opener of a week­end se­ries. The Na­tion­als will do the same with Roark. Wash­ing­ton’s ro­ta­tion will re­main the same for a dou­ble­header Sun­day, but the Rock­ies might jug­gle Jon Gray and Kyle Free­land. In his past three starts, Mar­quez, a 22-year-old rookie, has blazed through an ef­fec­tive run of com­mand, strik­ing out 23 bat­ters and walk­ing just four. That’s the kind of con­trol and strike zone cov­er­age that makes Colorado man­ager Bud Black smile. — Nick Groke, The Den­ver Post Sun­day (dou­ble­header): Rock­ies LHP Kyle Free­land (10-7, 3.64 ERA) at Na­tion­als TBA, 11:35 a.m., AT&T Sport­sNet
