Franklin Morales will try to seal the Rockies' second straight series victory in San Francisco. Tonight he opposes Tim Hudson, the 39 year old who doesn't strikeout or walk that many guys, but induces groundballs galore and generally weak contact. It all adds up to  2.99 ERA and one of the most dependable starters in the game.

But after the clinic Madison Bumgarner put on last night, Hudson's sinkers must look easy in comparison. I'm not sure if that's actually how it works, but sure, let's go with it.

Charlie Blackmon and Corey Dickerson are back in there against the right hander. So is DJ LeMahieu, and say hello to Michael McKenry: full time starter.

Anyway. Go Rockies. Now that I live on the east coast I'll have to recap this at about 2 am. Booooo.
