The Phillies learned yesterday that success against a pitcher in the regular season doesn’t guarantee you’ll hit that same guy in the post-season.  Jeff Francis had big problems against the Phillies during the year but you would never guess that by watching him pitch yesterday.  He pitched 6 innings and he only allowed 4 hits, 2 earned runs, walked 2 batters and whiffed 8 on his way to being the winning pitcher.  Relievers LaTroy Hawkins and Brian Fuentes followed Francis and each of them tossed a scoreless inning setting up closer Manny Corpas.  Corpas pitched a hitless 9th inning to earn the save.  Yorvit Torrealba, Todd Helton and Garrett Atkins each scored a run in the 2nd inning as the Rockies built a 3-0 lead against Cole Hamels of the Phillies.  He then settled down until he was replaced by Tom Gordon in the 7 inning.  But, in the 8th inning Matt Holliday hit a no doubt homer to pad the lead for the Rockies on their way to a big victory.  The Rockies are now up 1-0 on the Phillies.
