Jeff Francis Takes Mound To Deny Phillies Another Victory

Back on Tuesday, Jeff Francis pitched seven shutout innings, scattered three hits, and struck out seven against the Marlins. The Rockies won that game 10-0 and then promptly started a four-game losing streak.

The Phillies counter with J.A. Happ, who takes Jamie Moyer's place in the rotation. Happ made two starts in April before going on the disabled list with a sore left forearm. He made several rehab starts in June and then was optioned to Triple A at the start of July.

Game time is 11:35 a.m. MT.
