Rockies Vs. Diamondbacks: Colorado Wraps Up 2012 Season In Desert

The Colorado Rockies have endured their most dismal season in franchise history, having already set a franchise record for losses with 98. They look to end the season on a high note with a series win against their NL West rivals, the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Jeff Francis (5-7, 5.75) gets the start in the final game of the 2012 season. The veteran lefthander wasn't even in the in Colorado organization at the start of the season, but has been respectable in the rotation since returning to Denver. Francis' last start was unimpressive, allowing five earned runs in just four innings against Los Angeles.

Arizona will counter with Ian Kennedy (15-11, 4.16), who has not been as impressive this season after receiving serious Cy Young consideration in 2011. Kennedy last faced the Rockies two starts ago, going six innings and allowing four earned runs.

The Diamondbacks currently sit at 81-80, meaning that a victory in the last game of the season would give them a winning record for the second straight season.

First pitch is scheduled for 5:10 p.m. MT. Broadcast will be available on ROOT and 850 KOA
