Game Thread/Matchup Game # 38 vs. Rockies 2:05 CST

Jeff Francis Andy Pettitte
2 - 2, 3.16 2 - 4, 5.66

Betcha didn't know:

Andy Pettitte has five Quality Starts.

Which of course is one way to look at it. Here's another:

Andy's had one very good game; other than that, consistently mediocre is a phrase that comes to mind.

However, maybe the healing begins here: Rockies who have faced Pettitte are 1 for 21 with a double against him, with 7 strikeouts and five walks. The double belonged to Atkins.

Nobody but McEwing has ever faced Francis, but the news is pretty good this year against lefties in general. Ausmus, Ensberg, Lamb, Bruntlett, Biggio, and Berkman all have OPS's over 1.000 vs. southpaws.
