Sure, Sanchez threw a no-hitter July 10 against an injury-riddled minor league team, but let's not forget he was banished to the bullpen after his previous start, when he was 2-8 with a 5.54 ERA.  He will lose tonight to:

Jorge can push his record over .500 for the first time this season.  He has a 2.42 ERA in July and the Rockies have won 8 of his 9 starts since the page turned to June.  His record completely flipped over the last two months, despite only moderate improvement (if not regression) in his stats:

Call it karma returning the favor for early bad luck or just learning to keep the team in the game better.  Either way, let's see that 7-1 go to 8-1 since June.

After getting the team's lone RBI last night, Garrett Atkins has been awarded the cleanup spot again, while Ian Stewart sits against the lefty in spite his good night last night and having nearly even sOPS+'s vs LH and RHP.  At least Jorge means no Fred Lewis...
