Nelson out of lineup with twisted right ankle
ARLINGTON -- Rockies second baseman Chris Nelson, who has a five-game hitting streak and eight RBIs in his last eight games, did not start Sunday against the Rangers because of a twisted right ankle.

In the eighth inning of Saturday's 11-7 victory, Nelson ranged to his right, juggled a bouncer up the middle by Elvis Andrus and nearly made the throw to first in time. But Nelson landed awkwardly on his right foot.

Nelson is hitting .268 with five home runs and 19 RBIs.
