Rockies 5, Diamondbacks 1

Jeff Francis was on the losing end of his last encounter with D-backs ace Brandon Webb, but he more than made up for it with a gem to open the NLCS. The Rockies gave him all the offense he needed in the third, when Willy Taveras singled and scored on Kazuo Matsui's bloop hit before Brad Hawpe capped the rally with a two-run single.
