Lineup Card: Rockies vs. Astros 6-8-10

Strasburg Free Baseball tonight in Denver!

Thanks to fantastic pitching performances from Ubaldo Jimenez and Jason Hammel, the Rockies have a chance to reverse the three-game losing streak suffered last week.  In order for that to happen though, they'll need Jeff Francis to be better than he has been his last two outings.

Here's how they're lining up back behind Jeff.

Rockies Lineup (30-27)

  • CF Gonzalez
  • LF Smith
  • SS Tulowitzki
  • RF Hawpe
  • C   Olivo
  • 1B Helton
  • 3B Mora
  • 2B Barmes
  • P   Francis
Two starts in a row for Mora.  The Rockies are saying there's a minor ankle issue with Ian Stewart.  Probably for the best right now anyway.  Mora is playing well, Stewart needed some time to clear his head.  

Astros Lineup (22-36)
  • 2B Keppinger
  • SS Manzella
  • 1B Berkman
  • LF Lee
  • RF Pence
  • 3B Feliz
  • CF Michaels
  • C   Cash
  • P   Moehler

Astros 1, Rockies 0
