• The fact the Rockies started left-handed pitchers the first two games actually wasn't a bad thing for Derek Dietrich. The left-handed-hitting Dietrich was out of the lineup again on Tuesday, as Jeff Baker got the starting nod at second base.
The couple of days allows the fracture at the top of Dietrich's nose to heal. Dietrich broke his nose on March 20, and he had been wearing a protective mask in the field. The mask is no longer required.
