DENVER (AP) -Rockies first baseman Todd Helton left Wednesday's game with the Milwaukee Brewers with back spasms in the third inning.
``This was a precautionary move,'' Colorado manager Clint Hurdle said. ``We wanted to make sure nothing was wrong.''
Jeff Baker pinch-hit for Helton in the third inning with the Rockies leading the Brewers 10-0. Baker replaced Helton in the field in the top of the fourth.
``We would have taken him out if we hadn't had that big a lead,'' Hurdle said.
Helton was listed as day-to-day.
