While the Rockies have done nothing all season against right-hand pitchers where they are 48-65, they have certainly fared much better against lefthanders where they are 24-20. They get a shot at one tonight in Jonathon Sanchez who allowed six runs his last time out and did not survive the fourth inning. Sanchez has been making abbreviated outings the norm as he has pitched to a 6.49 ERA over his last 11 starts, and he was gone in five innings or less in seven of those. The Rockies are 5-3 in their last eight and took down Tim Lincecum last night, so the lineup is producing against a top-flight pitcher. The Rockies now get a shot at a struggling lefty where they have been at their best. We have a live dog here, so I'll back the Rockies.
