DESMOND DOUBLES & BRYCE IS BACK AS NATIONALS RAMBLE PAST THE ROX
Ian Desmond’s 3-run double sparked a decisive 5-run, 6th-inning uprising and Wash-ington’s 7-3 series-opening win over the Rockies on Mon. night at Nationals Park...Ryan Zimmerman doubled twice and posted a game-high 3 hits as Washington won its 3rd straight game...5 of Washington’s 9 hits went for extra bases (4 doubles, Adam LaRoche homer)...Jordan Zimmermann improved to 5-0 all-time against COL.
JUNE BOON
The Nationals finished June with a 17-11 (.607) mark to register their 2nd winning month of the season (16-12 in Mar./Apr.)...dating to 2011, Washington’s 62-45 (.579) June record ranked 2nd in MLB behind only the Pirates (67-40, .626).
.600 BALL IN JUNE
By going 17-11 (.607) in June, the Nationals played .600-or-better ball in a calendar month for the 8th time since 2005...a closer look:

SCORE 4 = WIN MORE
The Nationals are 36-3 when scoring 4 or more runs and, conversely, just 8-35 when limited to 3 or less runs by opposing pitchers.
NATIONALS STAFF EARNS GOLD OR SILVER IN MANY STATISTICAL CATEGORIES
Washington’s 3.07 staff ERA leads MLB (OAK ranks 2nd at 3.17)...Nationals pitch-ers also rank among MLB’s top 2 in these categories: fielding-independent pitching (first, 3.11), fewest earned runs allowed (first, 254), homers allowed/9.0 inn. (first, 0.61), home runs allowed (tied first, 50), SO/BB ratio (2nd, 3.19/1), walks/9.0 inn. (2nd, 2.49) and fewest blown saves (2nd, 5).
THE ‘PEN IS MIGHTIER THAN ...
At 2.50 (70 ER/252.1 IP), Washington relievers rank 2nd in MLB in bullpen ERA, sand-wiched between the Padres (first, 2.34) and Mariners (3rd, 2.59).
BETTER LEATHER
Washington has committed just 3 errors in 23 games dating to June 7...as the sea-son has progressed, the Nationals’ fielding percentage has risen while their error totals and unearned runs allowed have steadily declined...a closer look:
 MONTH FIELDING% ERRORS UNEARNED RUNS
 Mar./Apr. (28 games) .................... .975 26 19 May (26 games) ............................. .980 20 13 June (28 games) ............................ .993 8 2
SMITH BARNEY WOULD APPROVE
By yielding just 2 unearned runs in June, the Nationals set a new club mark for few-est unearned runs allowed in a calendar month...previous best: 3 in Apr./Mar. 2010.
POWER FROM THE PIVOT
The Nationals pace MLB in home runs (22) hit by middle infielders (COL is 2nd with 21)...15 of these 22 middle-infield homers have been hit by shortstops (Ian Desmond 14, Zach Walters 1), 7 by second basemen (Danny Espinosa 6, Anthony Rendon 1).• The 49 home runs hit by Washington infielders (14 from 1B, 7 from 2B, 13 from 3B, 15 from SS) this season rank 2nd in MLB behind only the Blue Jays (52) infield.
 
WITH > WITHOUT
With Ryan Zimmerman in the starting lineup this season, the Nationals are 22-14 and average 4.7 runs per game (170 runs, 36 contests)...in 46 games sans Zimmerman, Washington has averaged of 3.5 runs a game (161 runs, 46 games) and is 22-24.
POP FROM THE TOP
Denard Span (25 doubles, 5 triples, home run) currently leads all big league leadoff hitters with 31 extra-base hits...COL’s Charlie Blackmon (28) ranks 2nd.
AGENT ZERO
Dating to June 21, Jose Lobaton has started 4 games, 3 of which rendered shut-out victories for the Nationals (W3-0 June 28 at CHI/Day, W3-0 June 23 at MIL, W3-0 June 21 vs. ATL)...Lobaton’s catchers ERA in this 4-start span is 0.42 (2 ER/43.0 IP).
PHAT FARM
The .546 winning percentage (206-171) posted by the Nationals’ minor-league sys-tem ranks 5th among MLB’s 30 franchises...the Nationals system has registered a winning record each of the last 6 complete seasons (2008-13)...the only team in MLB with a longer such streak in their minor-league system is the Giants.
