Hot-hitting Tyler Colvin and the Colorado Rockies (31-50) take on the St. Louis Cardinals (43-39) on Thursday night, looking to shake their recent slump. The team has not won three games in a row since the end of May, and they have most recently lost four of their last five.
Colvin, who sports a 1.106 OPS since the beginning of June, will hit fifth for only the eighth time in the 2012 MLB Season. Acquired in the Ian Stewart trade, Colvin has been one of the few bright spots in the Rockies disappointing 2012 season.
Here is a look at the full lineup, courtesy of the Rockies official twitter account:
