Lineups Posted For Both Teams

Both teams have posted their starting lineups for tonight’s crucial NL West showdown.

2B Jonathan Herrera
CF Dexter Fowler
RF Carlos Gonzalez
SS Troy Tulowitzki
3B Melvin Mora
1B Todd Helton
LF Ryan Spilborghs
C Miguel Olivo
P Ubaldo Jimenez

Eric Young Jr. is still nursing a sore shin and is likely out for the remainder of the series. Dexter Fowler slides into the second spot in the order, behind Jonathan Herrera. It is Herrera’s first start in the leadoff role since June 28th against Milwaukee.

Ubaldo Jimenez is attempting to become the first Rockie pitcher to reach 20 wins in a season. He is also eight strikeouts from reaching 200 for the season and is facing a Diamondbacks team that last night set a baseball record for most strikeouts in a season.

Arizona counters with the following lineup:

SS Stephen Drew
CF Chris Young
2B Kelly Johnson
1B Adam LaRoche
3B Mark Reynolds
C Miguel Montero
LF Brandon Allen
RF Gerardo Parra
P Rodrigo Lopez

Rodrigo Lopez pitched well in his last start against the Rockies on September 11th, going 6 1/3 innings, allowing only two earned runs and striking out four Rockies in the loss.
