Lineup Card: Game 2 @ Kansas City

Rockies Lineup

  • CF Fowler   (Finally!)
  • DH Giambi
  • 1B Helton
  • SS Tulowitzki
  • RF Hawpe
  • LF Smith
  • C  Olivo
  • 3B Stewart
  • 2B Barmes
Jeff Francis on the mound.

Much needed day off for Carlos Gonzalez.  And it's great to see Fowler back at the top of the order.  

Royals Lineup
  • LF Podsednik
  • 2B Aviles
  • RF DeJesus
  • 1B Butler
  • DH Guillen
  • 3B Callaspo
  • SS Betancourt
  • CF Bloomquist
  • C   Kendall
Former Atlanta Brave Kyle Davies on the mound.  

Essentially the same lineup for Ned Yost even against a left-hander.  Willie Bloomquist starts for Mitch Maier in CF and that's the only change.  

Also, hopefully the Rockies are now aware the DeJesus can throw a little bit on there in RF.  You can take advantage of Podsednik and Bloomquist all day... but leave well enough alone with DeJesus.
