DENVER (AP) – Rockies left fielder Matt Holliday returned to the starting lineup for Game 3 of the NL Division Series 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.
