Two young pitchers experiencing breakout seasons face off in tonight's game. Francis is coming off perhaps the Rockies franchise's most dominant pitching performance against the Cardinals on Monday, while Young has been outstanding against the Rox in two starts this season. This should be more of a low scoring affair like last night than the first game of the series, but the Rockies' chances are still very good with Francis on the mound.
A win pulls us back to within three and a half games of the division leading Padres. Go Rockies!
