DENVER -- Rockies outfielder Drew Stubbs, who homered in the fourth inning of Saturday night's 8-1 win against the Pirates at Coors Field, was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the fifth because of a left foot injury. After the game, Stubbs said he injured the foot when he hit his homer.

"My spikes got caught in the dirt and my foot rolled over a little bit," Stubbs said. "I had to grit my teeth a little bit going around the bases. And as soon as I tried to run, it lit me up a little bit."

Corey Dickerson replaced Stubbs in the fifth. Dickerson drove in a run with a fielder's choice grounder to give the Rockies a 4-0 lead. He later hit a solo homer of his own in the victory.

In the top of the sixth Dickerson took over in left, Brandon Barnes moved to right field and Charlie Blackmon moved to center.

Stubbs' homer, off Pirates starter Jeff Locke, was his 11th of the season. He is hitting .302 with 29 RBIs this season.

Stubbs said he will determine Sunday morning if he will be available for Sunday afternoon's game.
