Friday lineups, after exiting Dreamland

Just made my first stop at the just-opened Dreamland across the street. It gets the seal of approval. Only six ribs in a half slab, but they were meaty. With that, the sky is mostly clear of clouds after the Biscuits feared rain today. Your lineups ...

Rodriguez will be more limited than the other Montgomery starters. He threw just 60 pitches in his last spring appearance for the Rockies and will stay at the same amount tonight.

8:11: Shaky night for Rodriguez. He leaves with none out in the fourth, five runs in and another runner on the hook. Halman took him out to center for a three-run homer. He allowed six hits. His three walks and no strikeouts are not characteristic of his previous career numbers.

8:22: Triunfel, one of Seattle's top prospects, is leaving the game with a left leg injury. He slid into second on an inning-ending double play in the top of the fourth. We think Bowers came down on his leg. Also, they're pulling the tarp. Rain delay.

8:38: Well, look to the right.
8:46: Rain stops. Cleanup begins.
9: An ambulance is here for Triunfel. His left ankle is heavily taped. It was something with his slide.
10:05: Triunfel in "good condition" at Baptist South, according to Baptist Health marketing coordinator Melody Ragland.

are we sure on this b/c the word from the medical center is that it was ligaments that he tore. I hope he's ok, he's a fine ballplayer and only 19!
