Colorado has won five of its last six and sit at 26-21.
San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) -
Three's a crowd atop the NL West standings, but the Colorado Rockies and San Francisco Giants will both try to change that as they meet up Friday at AT&T for the opener of a three-game series.
The Rockies, Giants and Arizona Diamondbacks are all tied for the division lead with identical 26-21 records entering the weekend. While Colorado and San Francisco face off against one another, the D-backs are hosting San Diego.
Colorado has won five of its last six, and that includes taking three of four from the Giants at home this past weekend. After topping Arizona in extra innings Tuesday night, the Rockies claimed the series victory with Wednesday's 4-1 win. Carlos Gonzalez tripled and homered to account for two of his team's four runs, while starter Jorge De La Rosa tossed 5 1/3 innings of one-run ball.
Cabrera starting to do his thing
By Chris Ruddick, MLB Editor
Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) -
If you are a baseball fan you should really sit back and appreciate what is happening in Detroit.
Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera could very well be on his way to becoming the best hitter this game has seen in some time. Yes Manny Ramirez and Alex Rodriguez were great and few players were ever as prolific as Barry Bonds, but I'm pretty sure we can all agree there may have been something else fueling them.
Perhaps history will one day tell us that Cabrera was doing a little more than just saying his prayers and eating his vitamins, but for now we should just accept the fact that we could be watching the best all-around hitter since Ted Williams.
