Who's afraid of big, bad Coors Field?

Clearly not Washington Nationals whiz kid Stephen Strasburg.

The 23-year-old right-hander wasn't as dominant as usual, but he clearly wasn't intimidated by Coors Field's nasty reputation.

Then again, neither was Rockies veteran lefty Jeff Francis.

On a Monday night when the temperature was 100 degrees at first pitch, making it the hottest home game in Rockies franchise history, neither starter wilted.

Colorado won 4-2 in the opener of a four-game series.
