The Colorado Rockies open the season this afternoon against the St. Louis Cardinals.

The game features two of the league's best hitters in Albert Pujols of the Cardinals and the Rockies' Matt Holliday.

Cardinals opening-day starter Adam Wainwright says he's confident he can get Holliday out if he makes his pitches.

Holliday has a .418 career average against the Cardinals, and last season's runner-up for the NL MVP is hitting .483 with five homers at new Busch Stadium, entering its third season.

The Rockies lineup also features Troy Tulowitzki, Todd Helton, Garrett Atkins and Brad Hawpe.

Left-hander Jeff Francis is getting the start for Colorado.
