Rockies vs. Diamondbacks lineups: Colorado's youngsters on display again

The Colorado Rockies wrap up a disastrous 2012 season on Wednesday against the Arizona Diamondbacks with mostly rookies in the starting lineup, as has been the case for months. The Rockies will get a second shot to win the series, after closer Rafael Betancourt blew Tuesday's game by allowing a three-run, walkoff homer to Aaron Hill.

Here are the full lineups:

Rockies

1. Josh Rutledge 2B
2. Charlie Blackmon LF
3. Jordan Pacheco 1B
4. Wilin Rosario C
5. Tyler Colvin CF
6. Andrew Brown RF
7. DJ LeMahieu 3B
8. Jonathan Herrera SS
9. Jeff Francis P

D-Backs

1. A.J. Pollock CF
2. Aaron Hill 2B
3. Justin Upton RF
4. Paul Goldschmidt 1B
5. Miguel Montero C
6. Chris Johnson 3B
7. Gerardo Parra LF
8. John McDonald SS
9. Ian Kennedy P

Veteran lefty Jeff Francis (5-7, 5.75 ERA), who could be pitching his last game in a Rockies uniform (again), will take the mound for Colorado. He'll be opposed by Arizona's Ian Kennedy (15-11, 4.16 ERA).
