Your 2-2 Colorado Rockies take on the Cincinnati Reds this afternoon in the club's fifth Cactus League game of the year. A road tilt across town at Cincy's Goodyear Ballpark, the two teams will face off at 1:10 pm MT. The Rockies lead the way with Christian Bergman on the mound, scheduled to throw two innings.

Bergman's work will be followed by two innings from Jeff Hoffman, two more from Kyle Freeland, and then an inning apiece from Nelson Gonzalez, Justin Miller, and Jason Gurkaaccording to's Thomas Harding.

The Rockies will face Reds starter Jon Moscot to open the game. Moscot, 24, was the Reds' fourth round draft pick out of Pepperdine University in 2012, and made his first three big league starts last summer for Cincinnati. He's now trying to win a big league job out of camp with the rebuilding club.

At the plate, the Rockies' lineup shakes out like this:

1 — Raimel Tapia — CF

2 — DJ LeMahieu — 2B

3 — David Dahl — LF

4 — Mark Reynolds — 1B

5 — Ben Paulsen — DH

6 — Ryan McMahon — 3B

7 — Brandon Barnes — RF

8 — Daniel Descalso — SS

9 — Dustin Garneau — C

Here's how the Reds' lineup looks:

The Rockies claim the game starts at 1:10 pm MT; the Reds say it's more like 1:05 pm. We've got a situation here, folks.

Unfortunately, no Jordan Pacheco for Cincy — though we may see him later in the game.

There's no TV for this one, but you can catch the Rockies' radio broadcast on KOA in and around Denver. For those outside the Rockies' media market, click here to listen to KOA or the Reds' broadcast online.
