Lineup Card Game 2 vs Philadelphia

Rockies Lineup

  • LF Smith
  • CF Fowler
  • 1B Helton
  • RF Hawpe
  • 2B Mora 
  • 3B Stewart
  • C  Olivo
  • SS Bamres
  • P   Cook
I don't disagree with starting Mora against Halladay (he's 22-for-76 lifetime).   I just find it strange that Tracy was so desperate to get Eric Young in the lineup last week that he had him play LF.  Now that 2B is open for a couple days, he turns to Mora and Young is planted on the bench.  

Who else is ready for Chris Iannetta to return?

Also, the Rockies have placed Franklin Morales on the DL and recalled Edgmer Escalona (love that name).  His stay should be a short one (unless someone else gets hurt) as Jason Hammel will be activated to start tomorrow.  Of course it's possible Esmil Rogers will go down to resume starting at AAA.  

Phillies Lineup 
  • CF Victorino
  • 3B Polanco
  • 2B Utley
  • 1B Howard
  • RF Werth
  • LF Ibanez
  • C  Ruiz
  • SS Valdez
  • P   Halladay
We''ll have the rest later, but that's scary enough as is.


Phillies 9, Rockies 1

Halladay: 7 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 5 K

The only Rockie with Halladay's number was Ian Stewart (3-for-4, RBI)

Aaron Cook was not good (5 IP, 6 H, 6 ER, 3 BB, 3 K), nor was Matt Daley (IP, 5 H, 3 ER).
