DENVER -- Rockies center fielder Dexter Fowler was scratched from Tuesday's lineup against the Cardinals with flu-like symptoms.

Eric Young Jr. started in center field in the series opener.

Fowler, second among National League leadoff hitters with a .326 average since moving to the top spot May 28, left the clubhouse and went home with an upset stomach.
