Rockies OF Holliday in lineup for Game 3 against Milwaukee
Colorado tries to avoid elimination Sunday at Coors Field after dropping two straight in Milwaukee.
Holliday started for the first time in the series with left-hander Wade Miley throwing for Milwaukee. Holliday has a hit and a strikeout as a pinch-hitter in the NLDS.
The 38-year-old Holliday was signed to a minor league deal July 29 and called up from Triple-A Albuquerque on Aug. 23.
In an effort to ignite a slumping offense, the Rockies bumped All-Star shortstop Trevor Story to the cleanup spot.
The Brewers started 38-year-old catcher Erik Kratz for a second straight game. He had two RBIs on Friday.
