Giolito struggles with command in Nationals' loss to Rockies

WASHINGTON (AP) Two poorly placed fastballs created plenty of problems for Lucas Giolito and the Washington Nationals on Sunday.

The rookie right-hander gave up consecutive home runs in the third inning to Colorado's Nolan Arenado and David Dahl on fastballs as the Rockies earned a series victory with a 5-3 triumph.

Giolito (0-1), one of baseball's top prospects, gave up four runs in five innings after his recall from Triple-A Syracuse earlier in the day. It was his fourth start of the season for Washington, and first since July 24.
