Rockies Line-up, April 5 2012


The Rockies will try and rebound tonight against the Atlanta Braves after losing in extra innings last night and attempt to climb back up to the .500 mark. The Braves will send out Mike Minor who is 2-2 with a 4.68 ERA on the season. This will the first time Minor has faced the Rockies in his career. Jamie Moyer will get the start for Colorado, he has been arguably the best starter for the Rockies with a 3.14 ERA but has only received five runs of support in his five starts and in three of those starts he has left the game without Colorado scoring a run. The Rockies roster will look a little different tonight with Adam Ottavino joining the bull-pen and Jordan Pacheco has been called up to replace Eric Young, Jr. who is on bereavement leave.
