Lineup Card: Rockies vs Padres

What These Two Games Mean

Rockies Lineup (79-65)

  1. 2B  Young
  2. CF  Fowler 
  3. LF  Gonzalez
  4. SS  Tulowitzki
  5. 1B  Helton
  6. 3B  Mora
  7. RF  Smith
  8. C    Olivo
  9. P    Hammel
Can't overstate how important this outing is for Jason Hammel.  The Rockies need innings.  Not just innings, good innings.  Good innings and damn good results.  I feel good about Hammel delivering what is needed.  

Padres Lineup (81-62)
  1. LF  Cunningham
  2. 2B  Eckstein
  3. SS  Tejada
  4. 1B  Gonzalez 
  5. RF  Ludwick
  6. 3B  Headley
  7. C    Hundley
  8. CF  Venable
  9. P     Garland
Get to Jon Garland early.  We saw pretty clear evidence last weekend that he will get rattled and lose focus when things start going against him.
