Jeff Francis and the National League champion Colorado Rockies will get a do-over from a rainout in the opener after an ugly start.

The left-hander, who tied the franchise record with 17 wins last year, walked three St. Louis Cardinals in a four-run first inning.

Francis also gave up a home run to Albert Pujols in the second. But his record was wiped clean when the game was postponed by rain Monday with the Cardinals leading 5-1 in the third inning.

The game was called and the opener was rescheduled for Tuesday night. It marked the fourth time in club history that the Cardinals' home opener was rained out.
