Andrew Brown, called up from Triple-A Colorado Springs to replace Jonathan Herrera, hit .317 in 86 games, with 20 homers and 84 RBIs -- second-most in the Minor Leagues.
"Those are pretty significant numbers," Rockies manager Jim Tracy said. "He's got a very interesting bat, and we're hopeful to find out more about the guy as we go on."
Eric Young Jr. started the game at leadoff for the Rockies, while usual No. 1 hitter Dexter Fowler hit third. Fowler is the third No. 3 hitter the Rockies have used in the last three games (Carlos Gonzalez, Jordan Pacheco).
