Astros VS Rockies
Wandy Rodriguez VS Rodrigo Lopez
Wandy Rodriguez Rodrigo Lopez
4 - 7, 4.57 4 - 1, 4.09

Today Wandy Rodriguez goes for his 5th win of the season as Rodrigo Lopez for the Rocks, does the same. Wandy comes into this game off a loss in which he went 5 innings and gave up 6 ER's. If he tries to do that again, he'll probably end up with the same outcome as last game.

No Biggio in the game tonight. I'm sure the fans are upset about that. Even at Biggio's current ability level, fans still come to the park to see him play and would probably still give him standing O's when he came up to bat today(even though he got 3000 hits 2 days ago. So the Biggio hit counter will stay at 3004 today(unless of course, Bidge pinch hits).

The Astros are coming off a shut out last night after being held to just 4 hits and just 1 extra base hit(Loretta 2B). The Rockies Francis was outstanding going 7 innings and giving up 3 hits with 4 strike outs, while Jason Jennings(facing his old team in the Rockies) pitched well matching Francis with the 7 innings, but giving up 3 runs. Even though Jennings earned the L last night, it was still a VERY positive outing for him. Jennings only gave up 5 hits and struck out 6.
