Game #113: Francis vs Gallardo

The Rockies look to complete a sweep of top NL Central contender number one today. With a win, the Rox will tie Milwaukee in the overall NL standings, which bodes better for our Wild Card chances should the Braves or Mets collapse. We couldn't have a hotter pitcher going for us than Francis, but unfortunately the same can probably be said of the Brewers with Gallardo, who's been nothing short of exceptional since being called up to Milwaukee.

Gallardo does have some fly ball tendencies and enough velocity that could lead to some trouble at Coors, particularly for our left handed hitters. Let's hope Todd Helton's game yesterday was  precursor of a hot streak to come, and look for him to do some more damage today.

Go Rockies!
