Lineup Card -- Rockies @ Angels

Rockies Lineup (38-34)

  • 2B Herrera
  • 1B Helton
  • CF Gonzalez
  • DH Giambi
  • RF Hawpe
  • LF Smith
  • 3B Stewart
  • C  Iannetta
  • SS Barmes
Jeff Francis on the mound.  Before anyone gets up in arms over Iannetta starting, I like him paired with Francis.  They seem to work well together.  Plus Olivo played that entire physically and mentally draining Boston series.  He might need a couple days off in this series.

Angels Lineup (41-34)
  • 2B Kendrick
  • SS Frandsen
  • RF Abreu
  • CF Hunter
  • DH Rivera
  • 1B Napoli
  • C  Mathis
  • LF Willits
  • 3B Woods
Jered Weaver on the mound.  He's better than his brother, Jeff Weaver, who typically gives the Rockies a tough time.  

Stacked with righties against Jeff Francis.  It will be a challenging night for Francis.  The Rockies need him to be really good, or at least to work deep in the good.  If he's not good, he may need to take one for the team just a tad bit.


Angels 4, Rockies 2
