The team has finished the first extended road trip of the season and they are finally home.
Not by coincidence the Rockies have also made their way to South Florida.
The Marlins will send Sergio Mitre to the hill while the Rockies plan to counter with Jeff Francis.
Game time is 7:35 p.m.
This will be Mitre's fifth start of the season and only his second in a night game. Mitre's only win thus far in the season came in a night game in Houston. We play far too many day games.
Tonight at the stadium it is Dominican Heritage Night. The organization has a bunch of stuff planned.
Last year there was a Dominican Heritage night but I believe the matching ticket giveaway is new. I guess they are doing anything to put people in the stands.
Should you want to get a take on how the Rockies fans are viewing this series, I highly recommend you check out Purple Row.
I have a confession to make: I love Rox Girl. But alas, sadly, she doesn't even know I exist. Such is the way of my life.
