DENVER (AP) -- The third game of the World Series is slated for Saturday night in Denver's Coors Field. The National League Champion Colorado Rockies dropped the first two games in Boston, 13-1 and 2-1, and need a win to turn things around.

The pitching matchup features Josh Fogg for Colorado against Daisuke Matsuzaka.

There's no designated hitter because the game is in a National League park. That means Boston's normal DH, David Ortiz, goes to play first base with Kevin Youkilis going to the bench for the Bosox.

Rockies manager Clint Hurdle is hinting he may shuffle his lineup a bit as well. The Rockies have managed just two runs in 18 innings so far.

Weather-wise the game time temperature is expected to be in the high 30s or low 40s with a slight breeze and no precipitation. The forecast for Game 4 on Sunday looks a little better with the temperature expected to be in the upper 40s or low 50s.
