19-6, 2.36

10-9, 4.79

jake peavy completely blanked the cardinals this year --- 2 starts, 0 runs allowed. the rockies haven't fared much better against him --- 2 starts, 2 runs. opposing hitters are batting .189 against him in the 2d half of the year; if there's a chink in his armor at all, it's the fact that he has allowed 8 hr since the all-star break (vs only 3 before the break). you couldn't ask for a better guy to pitch for you in a one-and-done game. if he wins tonight, he'll become the national league's first 20-game winner since carpenter and willis back in 2005.

fogg did not face the cardinals this year; he's 1-1 so far vs the padres with a 6.28 era in 3 starts (14 inn, 10 runs). he's been pretty good down the stretch --- 6-3 with a 4.12 era post all-star, 3-0 with a 3.25 era in september --- but hitters are hitting him just as hard as they did in the first half: he's yielded an .834 ops since the all-star break and an .843 in september.

i desperately wish i could go to this game, but my 5-year-old has a soccer game at 5:30 p.m. MDT, about 20 minutes after the first pitch --- the blue shirts (us) versus the red shirts (them). the rockies site on SB Nation is Purple Row, and the pads are represented at Gaslamp Ball; stop by and say howdy.
