Diamondbacks Vs. Rockies: Colorado Has Typical Sunday Lineup Once Again

It's Sunday for the Colorado Rockies once again, which means that manager Jim Tracy has decided to play a lineup filled mostly with his backup players. While some of these moves are expected, such as Jason Giambi starting for Todd Helton, Jonathan Herrera has stayed with the team and will start in place of Marco Scutaro.

Here is the Rockies lineup:

1. Eric Young Jr. CF
2. Tyler Colvin LF
3. Troy Tulowitzki SS
4. Jason Giambi 1B
5. Michael Cuddyer RF
6. Wilin Rosario C
7. Chris Nelson SS
8. Jonathan Herrera 2B
9. Drew Pomeranz P

Dexter Fowler sits again while Eric Young Jr. receives some playing time. Carlos Gonzalez is out once again due to sickness, allowing Tyler Colvin, who hit a two-run home run on Saturday, to start again. Wilin Rosario relieves Ramon Hernandez behind the plate.

And the Diamondbacks:

1. Ryan Roberts 3B
2. Gerardo Parra LF
3. Justin Upton RF
4. Chris Young CF
5. Paul Goldschmidt 1B
6. Aaron Hill 2B
7. John McDonald SS
8. Henry Blanco C
9. Trevor Cahill P
