Game 137: Jeff Francis vs. Cliff Lee

Loading Scores

Fun fact for y'all: Cliff Lee is 4-7 this year. He also has a 3.52 ERA -- about a point better than any of Colorado's starters. Oh and 3.5 fWAR (the Rockies' best is 1.0). That's a long way of saying that once again Colorado's starter will be over-matched by his opponent.

Jeff Francis is coming off a poor start, in which he lasted 3.2 innings and allowed 10 hits. Against an aging Phillies line-up, Francis could be primed for a bounce-back.

Colorado can't lose any more games the rest of the way if they want to keep that above .500 dream alive.
