The battle for the hearts of Eastern Colorado and Western Kansas continues tonight in Denver, as its Runelvys Hernandez (5-7, 4.61 ERA) against Jeff Francis (5-5, 5.60 ERA). We'd be amiss if we didn't mention Runelvys' classic quote from last week:
``This is like old school, the Runelvys Hernandez of 2003,'' he said. ``Everything is together. I feel excited about my last four outings. I'm getting better and better, but I'm not as strong yet as before the surgery.''
The Rockies look to continue their revenge against ex-manager Buddy Bell, and gain ground on the Royals in the Worst Team Standings. Lets see if the Royals can manage more than one extra-base hit.
