Lineup Card: Rockies vs Braves

Rockies Lineup (55-50)

  1. 2B  Young
  2. CF  Fowler
  3. LF  Gonzalez
  4. SS  Tulowitzki
  5. 1B  Helton
  6. 3B  Stewart
  7. RF  Smith
  8. C    Iannetta
  9. P    Rogers
It's really nice to see Jim Tracy stick with a consistent lineup... but, umm, aren't we supposed to be guarding against Todd Helton wearing down?  

Probably not.  After all, he used Huston Street again for a three straight game.  I'm sure if the Rockies lead late again today we'll see him again.  Conventional wisdom be damned, one of these times Huston Street will fight through the fatigue and throw seven days in a row without losing effectiveness.  

Braves Lineup (73-53)
  1. 2B  Infante
  2. RF  Heyward
  3. 3B  Prado
  4. C   McCann
  5. 1B  Lee
  6. LF  Cabrera
  7. SS  Gonzalez
  8. CF Ankiel
  9. P    Jurrjens
