Lineup Card: 4-8-11 Rockies @ Pirates

If you're looking for Rockies game lineups and you don't feel like searching all over Twitter or waiting for to post them, check back to Heaven & Helton about 60-90 minutes before first pitch and they should be here waiting for you.

Weather appears to be an issue in Pittsburgh this evening. If there is baseball, here are the lineups we'll be seeing.

Colorado Rockies (4-1)
  1. CF Dexter Fowler
  2. 2B Jonathan Herrera
  3. LF Carlos Gonzalez
  4. SS Troy Tulowitzki
  5. 1B Todd Helton
  6. RF Seth Smith
  7. 3B Ty Wigginton
  8. C   Chris Iannetta
  9. P   Jorge De La Rosa
Still no day off for Helton. Alright then. So all that talk about being more aggressive resting him seems out the window already. And Ian Stewart gets bumped from the lineup against a right-hander tonight. If you want to keep Wigginton in the lineup, which makes very good sense, why not get Helton that first day off?

Update (3:04): Ian Stewart out of the lineup tonight due to the flu-like symptoms. My criticism of today's lineup were unwarranted. 

Pittsburgh Pirates (4-3)
  1. LF Jose Tabata
  2. 2B Neil Walker
  3. CF Andrew McCutchen
  4. 1B Lyle Overbay
  5. RF Matt Diaz
  6. 3B Pedro Alvarez
  7. C   Jason Jaramillo
  8. SS Ronny Cedeno
  9. Ross Ohlendorf
