Rockies | Jeff Francis earns win Friday

Colorado Rockies SP Jeff Francis (1-1) allowed three hits over six scoreless innings in a victory over the San Diego Padres Friday, June 29, with one walk and one strikeout. It was his first win since Sept. 15, 2011, and the first victory by a Colorado starter since June 4. Francis has allowed three runs over his last 16 innings. When asked what the key to his recent success was, Francis said, "Just commanding both my curveball and changeup and being able to throw them for strikes and being able to throw them for a ball out of the zone when I need to."
