Giants Vs. Diamondbacks: Matt Cain Pitching For Giants

The San Francisco Giants have made a change in their rotation, and will send Matt Cain to the hill game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. The hosting D-backs will look to clinch the NL West division title with a win and will be relying on starting pitcher Joe Saunders to throw a solid game. After an off-day on Thursday, the Diamondbacks too reordered their rotation to put the veteran on the mound. Saunders is 12-12 this season, with a 3.66 ERA and 105 strikeouts. 

The Diamondbacks need just one win in the next six games to seal the deal, and are expecting a big crowd as they look to get that win out of the way. If they can't get it done, the D-backs will put Ian Kennedy on the mound Saturday to try and close it out. 

Here's how the Diamondbacks' starting lineup looks for Friday night:

Ryan Roberts 3B
Aaron Hill 2B,
Justin Upton RF
Miguel Montero C
Paul Goldschmidt 1B
Chris Young CF
Gerardo Parra LF
John McDonald SS
Joe Saunders LHP
