Rockies coach breaks nose during pregame warmups

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Colorado Rockies third base coach Rich Dauer was taken to an emergency room after getting struck on the bridge of his nose by a throw during batting practice.

A team spokesman said Dauer was hurt during a double play drill by a throw from Chris Nelson, but did not know if the nose was broken. Infielders had been practicing double plays without making the relay before Nelson's throw.

First base coach Glenallen Hill moved to third base for Sunday night's game against the St. Louis Cardinals and catching coordinator Marv Foley coached first base.
