Diamondbacks vs. Astros: Game 3 Preview, Probable Pitchers, Game Time, TV Schedule

Looking to sweep the weekend series against the Houston Astros, the Arizona Diamondbacks send Ian Kennedy to the mound Sunday to start the final match of a three-game set at 11:05 a.m. PT on Fox Southwest.

The Diamondbacks have found themselves caught in the middle of the Astros' managerial storyline, as Houston fired manager Brad Mills, hitting coach Mike Barnett and first-base coach Bobby Meacham following Saturday's game.

Arizona has taken all five meetings between the two teams this season, and has won eight straight against the Astros overall dating back to 2011. The Diamondbacks used a nine-run fifth inning in Saturday night's contest to put away Houston, with Aaron Hill's three-run homer powering the team's outburst.

Here are today's starting lineups:

Arizona Diamondbacks:

1. Gerardo Parra RF
2. Aaron Hill 2B
3. Jason Kubel LF
4. Paul Goldschmidt 1B
6. Chris Young CF
7. Stephen Drew SS
8. Ryan Wheeler 3B
9. Ian Kennedy RHP

Houston Astros
