Fowler remains sidelined with bruised knee
DENVER -- Dexter Fowler was out of the Rockies' starting lineup for Game 2 against the Giants on Tuesday as he nurses a bruised left knee.
Fowler injured his knee when he tried to steal second in the first inning of Monday's 6-1 win and left at the end of that inning. Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Tuesday that Fowler's knee was sore and he remains day to day.
"I think [when] he slid into the base, he kind of jammed it a little bit," Weiss said.
"I didn't see anything when it happened, but his knee kind of stuck in the ground. I think he just landed the wrong way."
Corey Dickerson batted leadoff and played center field in place of Fowler, who started 20 consecutive games before this injury.
After going on a tear in early August, Dickerson entered Tuesday with just one hit in his last 14 at-bats, a single that eventually turned into Colorado's sixth run in Monday's victory.
