Rockies Vs. Dodgers: Tyler Colvin Draws Start At First Base

Colorado Rockies manager is trying to find more playing time for Tyler Colvin. On Saturday it was as the center fielder. On Sunday, Colvin is taking the place of Todd Helton, who normally gets the end of the weekend off. Jason Giambi has previously taken these starts, but Colvin is hitting .315/.333/.574 in 25 games (57 plate appearances).

Here is Sunday's Rockies lineup:

2B Marco Scutaro
1B Tyler Colvin
LF Carlos Gonzalez
RF Michael Cuddyer
SS Troy Tulowitzki
C Ramon Hernandez
3B Chris Nelson
CF Dexter Fowler
P Alex White

Fowler makes his return to the lineup, as does Hernandez. Wilin Rosario drew the start behind the plate on Saturday night.

LF Tony Gwynn Jr.
2B Mark Ellis
CF Matt Kemp
RF Andre Ethier
1B James Loney
