Rockies at Marlins 4/28-4/30/06


Recommended Posts

Friday, April 28- Dolphins Stadium | 7:35 PM ET

Jeff Francis, LHP (0-2, 5.16) @ Sergio Mitre, RHP (1-2, 4.56)


Scouting Report:

After casting about through his first three starts, Francis was at his best Sunday, giving up one run on four hits through 6 2/3 innings in a game the Rockies won in extra innings. He used his change-up effectively, consistently fooling the Giants with it, and he had command of all his pitches, taking an aggressive approach on the mound with him.


A pair of home runs to Phillies' slugger Ryan Howard led to Mitre suffering a loss in his last outing. Even in defeat, Mitre was able to log six innings, while throwing a season-high 103 pitches. In 23 2/3 innings, the right-hander has struck out 18 while walking nine. He walked four at Philadelphia. In his first four starts, Mitre's shortest stint was 5 2/3 innings.



Saturday, April 29- Dolphins Stadium | 6:05 PM ET

Josh Fogg, RHP (2-1, 4.76) @ Jason Vargas, LHP (1-1, 5.06)


Scouting Report:

Fogg lost his first game of the season in his last start, going five innings and surrendering six runs, five earned, in a 6-4 setback against Philadelphia on April 24. Fogg gave up eight hits, including three doubles to the Phillies. But he has strong numbers against the Marlins, with a career 3-1 mark and a 2.40 ERA.


With any luck, Vargas would have notched his second win in his last start. In a brilliant 6 1/3 innings performance at Chicago, the left-hander gave up no runs and only one hit. Despite walking four, Vargas was effective. Three of his four starts have been on the road. His lone home start was his victory, when he beat the Padres on April 13. He yielded two runs in six innings that day.



Sunday, April 30- Dolphins Stadium | 1:05 PM ET

Miguel Asencio, RHP (0-0, 3.86) @Brian Moehler, RHP (0-3, 13.14)


Scouting Report:

Asencio went 3 2/3 innings in his first start of the season, when he faced the Phillies on Tuesday. Asencio started well and received considerable run support as the Rockies staked him to a 7-1 lead. But Asencio's good start quickly dissolved in one inning, as Asencio was pulled in the fourth after Philadelphia clawed back to score five runs in the frame. He had a problem with the bottom of the Philadelphia order, which may have had more to do with a lapse in concentration than in any mechanical flaw.


Because of a rainout in Philadelphia, the veteran right-hander was skipped in the last part of the rotation. His last outing was on April 17 at Cincinnati, where he gave up eight runs -- seven earned -- in five innings. Since then, Moehler has worked extensively on his mechanics, fine-tuning his delivery. He is making some adjustments that he believes will make his pitches have a different look.

How dare you post my pattented weekley pitching matchups thread! On the other hand, now I don't have to.


Fogg has been good against the Marlins in the past but we've got Vargas in that one so it should be a good day.


Moehler start = loss.
