The lineup is the same as Opening Day, but let’s hope the final score is slightly better.
The Rockies will start their home opener with the same players on the field, except for the pitcher, that they started for that season opener in Milwaukee.
The team dropped that game, but went on to win the series with gusto. Multiple homeruns, hits and almost perfect defense showed this team is ready to play.
For today’s home opener the team will welcome the Padres to Coors Field. The Padres are coming off of one and two series against the Mets, and our old friend Jason Marquis will be on the mound.
The Rockies most consistent pitcher through Spring Training, and even going back to last season, Jeff Francis will take the ball.
