What has happened to Jeff Francis? Colorado's 17-win ace from their World Series team last year is just 1-5 this season with a 6.12 ERA. In his 11 starts, Colorado is 3-8. The Rockies are 0-8 on their current ten-game road trip and they have lost 13 straight away from Coors Field. They average just 3.8 runs per game on the road. The Dogers are happy to see Francis, the southpaw, as they are averaging 6.3 runs per game this season vs. LHP. Brad Penny has had his own struggles, but the Dodgers bullpen has been awesome posting a 3.02 ERA (2.50 at home). The Rocks are 4-16 this season against teams with a bullpen ERA under 3.50. The Dodgers are 15-3 the past two seasons over a losing team with Penny on the mound.
