Lineup Card: 5-7-11 Rockies @ Giants

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. They should be here waiting for you.

  • Yesterday's Recrap: A positively maddening loss
  • Huston Street will be answering fan questions over at the Denver Post. Would love to be the person who has to read and select the questions he will be asked. 
  • Rockies 2010 1st round pick Kyle Parker has no doubts about his choice to play baseball. The Post and Courier (Via Purple Row)
  • Esmil Rogers was officially placed on the DL (strained lat muscle) to make room for Clayton Mortensen.

Colorado Rockies (18-12)
  1. CF Dexter Fowler
  2. 2B Alfredo Amezaga
  3. LF Carlos Gonzalez
  4. SS Troy Tulowitzki
  5. 1B Todd Helton
  6. 3B Jose Lopez
  7. RF Ryan Spilborghs
  8. C   Chris Iannetta
  9. P   Clayton Mortensen
Jose Lopez hitting 6th. Ryan Spilborghs hitting 7th. Makes sense against a lefty, but they were easy outs against a less good lefty in Joe Saunders on Tuesday. 

San Francisco Giants (16-16)
  1. CF Aaron Roward
  2. 2B Freddy Sanchez
  3. SS Mike Fontenot
  4. C  Buster Posey
  5. 1B Aubrey Huff
  6. LF Pat Burrell 
  7. RF Nate Schierholtz
  8. 3B Miguel Tejada
  9. P   Madison Bumgarner
Madison Bumgarner 2011: (0-5, 4.75)

Madison Bumgarner last two starts: (0-2, 0.69)

Don't let the season totals fool you. Bumgarner is a terrific young pitcher and he's just now heating up. Could be another long night at the office.
