• Second baseman Josh Rutledge batted eighth for the third time this season, and third baseman Nolan Arenado hit second after being in the sixth or seventh spot for his first six games in the Major Leagues. With No. 6 hitter Helton off the disabled list and catcher Wilin Rosario hitting seventh, Weiss said, "Who the heck's going to hit eighth in that lineup is basically what it's come down to."
• Arenado said Mike Gonzalez, his high school coach, would be here for the three-game series with the Yankees that begins Tuesday. Yankees catcher Austin Romine was two years ahead of Arenado at El Toro High School in Lake Forest, Calif.
