Sullivan out, Spilborghs in at center

DENVER (AP) _ Colorado Rockies manager Clint Hurdle has changed
center fielders again as the team tries to force a fifth game in
the World Series against Boston.
Ryan Spilborghs (SPIHL'-borgz) will start tonight in place of
Cory Sullivan, who went 0-for-2 and misplayed a ball during last
night's 10-5 loss to the Red Sox. Spilborghs went 0-for-5 as the
designated hitter in two games at Fenway Park, striking out three
times looking in Game Two. He was hitless in two at-bats off the
bench Saturday.
Spilborghs will bat sixth, one spot ahead of Brad Hawpe (hahp).
Hawpe struck out eight times in the first three games while going
3-for-13.
Right-handed hitting outfielder Willy Taveras was hoping to
return to the lineup for Game Four with Boston lefty Jon Lester on
the mound.
