Rockies Vs. Phillies Lineups: Fowler Out, Gonzalez In On Wednesday

Colorado Rockies left fielder Carlos Gonzalez is in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Philadelphia Phillies, as the team announced its starters recently. Gonzalez has missed a few games recently with a strained right knee, but it appears that he'll be out there on Wednesday as the Rockies look to end their major struggles.

Since June 4, the Rockies have won just a single game, a ten-inning victory over the Detroit Tigers on June 15. Otherwise, the Rockies have lost 11 of their past 12 games, plummeting in the standings as their pitching staff has crumbled. They're trying some new (see: unconventional) things over the next few weeks, but it remains to be seen how that'll work out.

Here's the Rockies' lineup:

1. Tyler Colvin (CF)
2. Marco Scutaro (SS)
3. Carlos Gonzalez (LF)
4. Michael Cuddyer (RF)
5. Todd Helton (1B)
6. Jordan Pacheco (3B)
7. Chris Nelson (2B)
8. Wilin Rosario (C)
9. Alex White (P)

And the Phillies' lineup:

1. Jimmy Rollins (SS)
2. Juan Pierre (LF)
3. Hunter Pence (RF)
4. Carlos Ruiz (C)
5. Shane Victorino (CF)
6. Placido Polanco (3B)
7. John Mayberry Jr. (1B)
8. Michael Martinez (2B)
9. Joe Blanton (P)
