Christian Friedrich vs Lance Lynn
Clear. Winds blowing in from center field at 5-10 m.p.h. Game time temperature around 100.
The Rockies conclude their epic series against the St. Louis Cardinals. All we know for sure is that this game is nothing short of historic, with the world's eyes focused on Busch Stadium tonight.*
* by historic, I mean that it literally will be recorded for future historians to look at, should they so desire, not that they actually will desire such. And by the world's eyes, I'm probably stretching the figurative connotation of the metaphor, but I'm sure there's some Cardinals fan in Japan or on a foreign military base or something that will be interested in the outcome, maybe. At least an overseas gambling addict or two, right?
