Lineup Card: 7-9-11 Rockies @ Nationals

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 30-60 minutes before first pitch. They should be here waiting for you.


Yesterday's recap: Return of the Rock Solid Recap


Colorado Rockies (42-47)
  1. CF Ryan Spilborghs
  2. 2B Mark Ellis 
  3. 1B Todd Helton
  4. SS Troy Tulowitzki
  5. RF Seth Smith
  6. LF Ty Wigginton
  7. 3B Ian Stewart
  8. C  Chris Iannetta
  9. P   Ubaldo Jimenez
Tulowitzki back, Gonzalez back out as his wrist is still pretty sore. He won't play tonight and he's unlikely again for tomorrow. Hopefully the rest will allow him to be healthy when the All-Star break concludes.

Return of the Rock Solid Recap

Every now and the Rock Solid Recap goes on a vacation. For example, the entire second half of last September, it was all Recrap all the time. But it's always nice when the Recap makes it triumphant return!

Welcome back Recap!

Welcome back Rockies!

Rockies 3, Nationals 2 (boxscore)

Let's get right into the three positives

1. Jason Hammel: A huge, HUGE bounce back effort from Hammel. I admit I was getting a little concerned there might be a lingering back problem or something else that was bothering him. And maybe there was. But this performance helped suppress those worries, and should help to inflate Hammel's confidence. If he'd lost any that is.

Line: 6 1/3 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 3 K

2. Jonathan Herrera: The professional pain in the ass is back to being just that. Herrera reached base three times (two hits, one walk) and was the catalyst in Colorado's three-run fourth inning (the only inning they scored in). He also had a solid night in the field.
