Jeff Francis shined in his playoff debut, giving up just two solo homers as the Rockies took Game 1 in Philadelphia. The left-hander fanned eight batters in six innings, while veteran Todd Helton got Colorado started with a triple in his first postseason at-bat. MVP candidate Matt Holliday contributed a homer.
I was excited to see that they took this game. That's 15 wins in 16 games. They are on fire! Now if the Cubs can win tonight!
