SP Ian Kennedy, RHP            SP Yovani Gallardo, RHP

Lyle Overbay was the Diamondbacks’ starting first baseman against Yovani Gallardo in Game 1 of this series, but manager Kirk Gibson has decided to go with Paul Goldschmidt versus Gallardo the second time around after the rookie went 5-for-11 (.455) with two homers in three starts since then. Other than that switch Arizona is using the same lineup as Game 1.

Milwaukee’s lineup is the same one it used in each of the series’ first three games, as the Brewers only changed things up in Game 4–swapping in Carlos Gomez and George Kottaras for Nyjer Morgan and Jonathan Lucroy–because a left-hander was on the mound.
