Lineup Card: Game 1 vs Philadelphia

Rockies Lineup

Could be a rough night defensively with Mora and Giambi on the right side.  At least Young isn't in LF again.

  • LF Smith
  • CF Fowler
  • RF Hawpe (fresh off the DL)
  • 1B Giambi
  • 2B Mora
  • 3B Stewart
  • C  Olivo
  • SS Barmes
  • P   Smith
Tulo is day-to-day with his quad strain.  It's not the same quad he tore in 2008, and the MRI was clean.  That's obviously great news.  He will still be rested at least a couple days to help assure a repeat of 2008 doesn't come about.

Phillies Lineup
  • CF Victorino
  • 3B Polanco
  • 2B Utley
  • 1B Howard
  • RF Werth
  • LF Ibanez
  • C  Ruiz
  • SS Valdez
  • P   Kendrick
You know how good the first six are. Greg Smith needs to find out a way to get as many outs as he can from the 7, 8 and 9 spots.  That won't be easy because Ruiz is also a terrific hitter and pain in the ass for the Rockies.
