PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Outfielder Seth Smith, a September call-up who had a key hit in Colorado's tiebreaker win over San Diego, is part of the Rockies' 25-man roster for the start of the playoffs.
Smith, who went 5-for-8 as a pinch-hitter after being called up, was included over minor league power prospects Joe Koshansky and Ian Stewart.
Smith tripled in the sixth and scored on Kaz Matsui's shallow sacrifice fly for a 6-5 lead Monday against the Padres. The Rockies won 9-8 in 13 innings for the NL wild card spot.
The Rockies, who went 14-1 down the stretch, open Wednesday at Philadelphia in their first postseason series since 1995.
Left off the roster for the divisional series against the Phillies was right-hander Jorge Julio, who surrendered a two-run homer to Scott Hairston in the top of the 13th before the Rockies rallied for three runs.
