WATERED DOWN
Jeff Francis outpitched Brandon Webb and the Rockies won the NL championship series opener over the Diamondbacks 5-1 Thursday night in a game interrupted when fans angered by an umpire's disputed interference call threw objects onto the field. After several water bottles landed near Colorado players, umpires pulled the teams off the field in the bottom of the seventh inning. Once play resumed, the wild-card Rockies escaped a jam in their NLCS debut and won for the 18th time in 19 games.

Enough's enough.'' - Rockies manager Clint Hurdle, who pulled his players from the field after several water bottles thrown by fans landed near them in the bottom of the seventh inning of a 5-1 win over the Diamondbacks in Game 1 of the NLCS on Thursday night.
