Game 19: Mike Minor vs. Jeff Francis

Doug Pensinger

For the second Tuesday in a row, the Rockies will play a double header at Coors in miserable weather conditions.

Despite temperatures sitting in the 20's, the Braves and Rockies are set to play two games today in a battle for the best record in baseball. Last week the Rockies were able to take both ends of a double header against the Mets in similar conditions, but they should face a stiffer test here. So grab a blanket and a cup of hot chocolate to see if they can do it again.
