The Rockies' starter is Aaron Cook. Big Red last started the Rockies' Opening Day game in 2007, facing Brandon Webb and the Diamondbacks. While Cook allowed five runs in six innings, Webb also allowed five runs. It was LaTroy Hawkins that day who was totally ineffective, allowing three runs in the eighth.
