Game 104 Thread: July 28 @ Rockies, 5.05p

Okay, let's try this again:

Dodgers start Brett Tomko, RHP (2-7, 5.42) vs. Jeff Francis, LHP (10-5, 4.22).

Dodgers: 57-46 (1st place NL West, 0.5 GA, W1)
Rockies: 51-51 (4th place NL West, 5.5 GB, L1)

From, the scouting report on the starters:

Dodgers: Tomko has stepped up twice with the staff under siege, allowing one earned run in five innings to the Giants, then no earned runs in six innings to the Mets while filling in for the injured Randy Wolf. He took a cut fastball out of mothballs, and it has made a huge difference in Tomko's ability to keep hitters off balance and induce ground balls.

Rockies: Francis has struggled with his fastball command the last month, but his curveball has been effective. That was the case on Monday against the Padres. Francis went six innings and gave up five runs on 10 hits, including two home runs. It was the third time in his past four starts he's given up five or more runs.

No Loney. I'm worried.

I guess I should be more worried about Tomko giving up 2-run jacks.
