Pirates vs. Rockies, 11 August 2005

Josh Fogg (5-7, 4.96) vs. Jeff Francis (11-7, 5.37), 3:05 EST. Finally, the Rockies offer up an interesting player. Francis is a tall pitcher who throws a 90+ MPH fastball that seems faster, along with a nice curveball. Baseball America named him their minor league player of the year last year. (Learn about Francis here.)

Josh Fogg is pitching for his life in the Pirates' rotation, so today's game could have lasting impact on the Pirates even though it isn't important in the standings.
