Rockies juggle lineup again for Game 4 of playoffs

Colorado Rockies manager Jim Tracy is juggling his lineup again, flip-flopping Garrett Atkins and Yorvit Torrealba for Game 4 of the playoffs against the Philadelphia Phillies.

The weather warmed considerably after a cold front moved out of Colorado, with temperatures in the mid-40s Monday after Game 3 was played in the mid-20s.

Tracy moved Atkins up to fifth following his 2-for-4, two-RBI performance in the sixth spot Sunday night. He bumped down Torrealba, who went 0 for 4 with three strikeouts in the No. 5 spot in Colorado's 6-5 loss in Game 3.

The Phillies lead 2-1 in the best-of-five series. Tracy also inserted Seth Smith into left field and moved Carlos Gonzalez to right. All-Star right fielder Brad Hawpe was benched for the second straight game.
