Rockies and Diamondbacks Lineups Posted

Both teams have posted their lineups for tonight's series, and season, finale. The Rockies starting nine is as follows:

2B Jonathan Herrera
RF Ryan Spilborghs
CF Carlos Gonzalez
SS Troy Tulowitzki
1B Jason Giambi
3B Melvin Mora
LF Seth Smith
C Chris Iannetta
P Jeff Francis

Chris Iannetta will be making his first start since injuring his calf on September 9 against the Cincinnati Reds. Jeff Francis will be making his second start since returning from the disabled list. Though he is not on a strict pitch count, he will be watched carefully and pulled at the first sign of trouble. Expect another long night for the Rockies' bullpen tonight.

3B Ian Stewart is on the lineup card tonight, and is available to pinch hit. He has been on the disabled list for almost a month with sore ribs.

Here is the lineup for the Arizona Diamondbacks:

SS Stephen Drew
LF Ryan Roberts
2B Kelly Johnson
CF Chris Young
1B Adam LaRoche
3B Mark Reynolds
C John Hester
RF Cole Gillespie
P Ian Kennedy

Diamondbacks 2B Kelly Johnson has hit a homerun in each of the first two games of this series, and is 4-for-8 for his career against Jeff Francis.
