Game Preview: Whoahhh this is an early game, almost missed it

The Rockies try to win the series on getaway day

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

With a road trip upcoming, the Rockies are playing an afternoon tilt at Coors Field today. They're trying to win this series with the Giants and wash the taste of last night's stinker out of their mouths. Notes:

Ryan Vogelsong is the starting pitcher for the Giants. He's working on a 3.73 ERA this season, a nice little bounce back after a putrid 2013.

In an effort to get more lefties into the lineup, Walt Weiss is putting Ben Paulsen in right field. This is his first big league start in the outfield. Hopefully he acquits himself well.

Nolan Arenado is back in the lineup.

Christian Bergman is making his second start since returning from the DL. Hopefully he makes it a good one.

Go Rockies.
