Game 69: Christian Friedrich vs. Roy Oswalt

The big story in this one is that this is Roy Oswalt's first start of the season. It is also Oswalt's first start as a member of the American League in his 10 year major league career. Opposing him will be Christian Friedrich, who on the road has been Colorado's best pitcher this year (2.10 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, 9.3 K/9). If Friedrich pitches like he has on the road all year against MLB's top offense and Oswalt shows some rust, Colorado could steal this game.

With a sweep (yeah right), the Rockies are still able to come out of their season-long 9 game road trip with a 5-4 record.
