Worth noting

• There was an oddity in the Rockies' lineup Sunday -- Helton as designated hitter. While one would think he'd have done it several times as his career advanced, he'd actually been DH just once -- June 23, 2007 at Toronto, when he went 0-for-4 with a strikeout and a walk.

• Weiss rested Wilin Rosario, who has been dealing with soreness in both hamstrings all week. Rosario went 2-for-4 with a home run and a double in Friday night's 6-3 victory over the Orioles as designated hitter, and 2-for-5 as catcher Saturday night. Rosario entered Sunday with a nine-game hit streak, and he was hitting .355 with seven home runs, 12 doubles, 31 RBIs and 27 runs scored in his last 44 games.
