Game No. 84: Friedrich vs. Strasburg

New, 576 comments

If you think that pitching match up is ugly, it gets even worse when you factor in the lineup.

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Troy Tulowitzki will get the night off in this one after starting the last 15 straight games and the next off day not until July 10th. This unfortunately means that Drew Stubbs, who is batting .213 and has an of OPS of .611 on the road this season, will bat cleanup. Charlie Blackmon will also get the night off, but he probably needed one with his recent slump.
