Lineup Card: Rockies vs Diamondbacks

A sweep today would be bad.  Not just because being swept by Arizona is bad, but because being swept by anyone is bad.

Also, losing Ubaldo Jimenez starts isn't the best idea either.  It's kinda sad the Rockies have to rely on him so heavily to stop a losing streak, stop a sweep, eat up innings, save the bullpen, be superman every time he takes ball,  But it's pretty special how he just shrugs his shoulders, takes the ball, and continues performing at the level he has.

Let's see what he has in store for us in this slightly less publicized matchup with Rodrigo Lopez.

Rockies Lineup (28-27)

  • CF Gonzalez
  • LF Smith
  • SS Tulowitzki
  • RF Hawpe
  • C  Olivo
  • 1B Helton
  • 3B Stewart
  • 2B Barmes
  • P   Jimenez
Diamondbacks Lineup (22-34)
  • 2B Johnson
  • LF Jackson
  • 1B LaRoche
  • 3B Reynolds
  • CF Young
  • RF Parra
  • C   Snyder
  • SS Ojeda
  • P   Lopez
If Arizona keeps the game close they'll have Stephen Drew, Justin Upton and Ryan Roberts (newest Rockie killer) available to hit late in the game.

Rockies 7, Diamondbacks 3
