The lineups are out for the first game of a 4 game series that starts tonight between the Arizona Diamondbacks and the San Francisco Giants.
Tonight’s pitching matchup is RHP Trevor Cahill (5-10, 4.39 ERA) for the DBacks and RHP Ryan Vogelsong (3-4, 5.49) for the Giants.
These two pitchers faced off August 31st in Arizona, both allowing 3 runs in a 4-3 victory by the DBacks. Neither got a decision in a game that ended on an Eric Chavez walk off base hit.
Martin Prado has a hot bat for the DBacks, he just won player of the month for August. The Giants come in after hitting 6 home runs in San Diego yesterday. Pablo Sandoval led the charge with 3 on his own. We’ll see if that translates as they come home.
Buster Posey is out of the lineup for the second straight game with a sore finger. Alex Pavlovic shared the info before the game.
Posey had X-ray today, doesn't have results yet. Feels better but still not ready to take swings.

We’ll update if any results come back. For now it seems Buster is on the bench for the next few days.
