|Jeff Francis tames Diamondbacks|
Rookie catcher Wilin Rosario clubbed his 16th homer of the season, Dexter Fowler banged out three hits and rookie shortstop Josh Rutledge collected two more hits.
Rosario's offense has been stronger than expected, rewarding the Rockies' faith in him leaving spring training with the team. Fowler looked awful at one point in this season, someone who would have little trade value but he's become a consistent hitter and is showing the best power of his career. Rutledge, well, what can you say, the guy is good. He won't always hit this well, he just doesn't profile as that type of high-.300's bat but he is someone I profile to have a long MLB career and be a guy who is a great role model on the field, a gamer.
Rockies' Prospects Spotlight
High-A outfielder Kyle Parker is the hottest hitter in the Rockies' system but he was held to just one hit - his 12th homer of the season.
Rookie-league outfielder David Dahl keeps hitting - three more to his season total and his average is now at a remarkable .366.
