Rockies Vs. Giants Lineups: Cuddyer At No. 5 While Helton Rests

The Colorado Rockies (2-3) take on the San Franciso Giants (1-4) on Thursday afternoon, but will be without one of their top run-producers as 1B Todd Helton takes a rest.

Here is a look at today's lineup, courtesy of MLB.com:

  1. 2B Marco Scutaro
  2. CF Dexter Fowler
  3. LF Carlos Gonzalez
  4. SS Troy Tulowitzki
  5. RF Michael Cuddyer
  6. C Wilin Rosario
  7. 1B Jordan Pacheco
  8. 3B Chris Nelson
  9. P Jamie Moyer

Moyer makes his second start of the season after his 2012 debut fell victim to some home runs and some questionable defense. The 49-year-old Moyer will have 26-year-old 1B Jordan Pacheco manning first base behind him. Pacheco made his major league debut in the 2011 season and hit 2 home runs in 88 PA with a .286/.318/.369 slash.
