Interleague Play, Angels Vs. Rockies Starting Lineups: Albert Pujols At Third Base, Kendrys Morales Back At First Base

The Los Angeles Angels hit the road Friday night, beginning a three-game interleague series against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field. With no designated hitter in a National League park the Halos' lineup has a unique look to it, with Albert Pujols at third base. Kendrys Morales is at first base, his first start there since breaking his leg on May 29, 2010.

This is the first start at third base for Pujols as an Angel. He did play 2 2/3 innings at third base on May 20 in an extra-inning loss to the San Diego Padres at Petco Park.

C.J. Wilson gets the start for the Angels, and Alex White starts for the Rockies. Here are Friday's starting lineups:
