Colorado Rockies Game #152 Preview: Joe Kelly vs. Juan Nicasio

Sometimes you get the Bull, sometimes the Bull gets you. - Doug Pensinger

Rockies turn to Nicasio as they look for their second straight win over St. Louis.

After a late-inning rally last night produced a 6-2 win in the series opener, the Colorado Rockies will look to win two games in a row tonight when they take on the St. Louis Cardinals.

Juan Nicasio will make his 29th start of the season for the home team tonight. So far this season, he has posted a 4.58 ERA in 147 1/3 innings with 109 strikeouts. He will be looking for his ninth win of 2013 tonight.

The Cardinals will send Joe Kelly to the mound tonight for his 14th start of 2013. He has also made 21 relief appearances this year. In his 13 previous starts, Kelly is 8-2 with a 2.28 ERA in 75 innings.

Nolan Arenado will sit out tonight nursing a thumb injury, meaning DJ LeMahieu moves to third base and Josh Rutledge starts at second. Charlie Blackmon and Corey Dickerson start with Michael Cuddyer in the outfield.

The Cardinals will use the same position players and batting order as in last night's game.
