Rockies Vs. Pirates Lineups: Nelson Back At Third Against Pittsburgh

The Colorado Rockies (8-7) take on the Pittsburgh Pirates (6-9) on Tuesday evening, looking for a win after the rains gave them an extra day off on Monday.

And the Pirates lineup, courtesy of Ohio Valley Athletic's Michael Waterloo:

3B Chris Nelson gets the start at third base after sitting in two of the last four games. The team is still waiting for Nelson to translate his minor league success into major league production. The 26-year-old sports a team-worst .277 weighted on-base average with no home runs and only one steal.

First pitch is at 5:05 p.m. MT.
