Hot start doesn't hold up for Tribe
Francisco's early homer not enough for Indians vs. Rockies
DENVER -- The Indians and Rockies probably have enough in common to feel like brothers.Both teams made noise last October, only to fall short of their goal. And both are enduring a wildly disappointing 2008 season thus far. When his Indians suffered a three-game sweep at the hands of the Rockies with Thursday night's 6-3 loss at Coors Field, Tribe third baseman Casey Blake compared the Interleague series to a brotherly battle.
