A day after Nicaso proved he didn’t have what it takes to justify his spot in the starting rotation, the Rockies will try to at least split the short two-game series with the Red Sox by sending Roy Oswalt out for his second start as a Rockie.
In Oswalt’s first game he struck out 11 batters in 5.0 innings, but took the loss in Washington. It was his most strikeouts in a game since 9/1/05 against the Reds when he pitched with Houston. Oswalt has never faced the Red Sox.
LeMahieu will leadoff as Dexter Fowler is out of the lineup today with a “sore wrist”. He felt the pain during yesterdays beating, perhaps explaining his 0-4 at the plate.
