Diamondbacks vs. Giants: Lineups Announced For NL West Showdown

This is probably the biggest series of the year for the Arizona Diamondbacks and San Francisco Giants. A series win for Arizona probably wraps up the division with four weeks to play, a series loss makes things even more interesting. 

The DBacks will face a tough pitcher on the mound in the series opener. Matt Cain is 10-9 with a 2.87 ERA, though he typically receives little or no run support. As for Joe Saunders, the lefty will face what is probably San Francisco's best lineup at the moment.
