The Colorado Rockies are scheduled to send the following pitchers to the mound on Saturday and Sunday: Jeff Francis (2-1, 5.16 ERA) and Jeremy Guthrie (3-8, 6.28 ERA). And on Friday, it begins with left-hander Drew Pomeranz (0-3, 3.72 ERA), drafted fifth overall in the 2010 draft by the Cleveland Indians.
