TODAY'S WRAPS: September 18, 2007
Sir Francis bakin'
Solid start for naught

Series at a glance:
Francis dominant
Rockies denied the division-foe Dodgers a win behind the masterful pitching of left-hander Jeff Francis, who struck out 10. Left fielder Matt Holliday continued his MVP campaign with an RBI single, and Cory Sullivan had two hits and scored two runs.
