New Rockies starter Jose Contreras, in his first game as a Rockie, looked like the man who helped the White Sox win the World Series a couple of years ago, with the Rox winning 4-1. This not only keeps the Wild Card lead over the Giants, it helps tremendously to plug a hole in the rotation left by the injured Aaron Cook. The top of the batting order was productive, with CarGo getting a leadoff homer in the 1st, Seth Smith getting 3 hits and an RBI including his homer, and Todd Helton getting 2 RBI.

The crowd of 39,000 enjoyed the beautiful evening.
