So, should we do a pre-game/post-rapture roll call? No, let's not, I trust that all of you are here and that Chase Field and all its gnomes haven't spontaneously combusted yet. Which is probably good for Micah Owings, seeing as how he probably wants to pitch tonight! We welcome our silver slugger back to the big leagues for inter-league play in which we hope to be able to say to the Twins, "Pssh, we don't need no stinkin' DH." Lineup in the usual place.

  1. Ryan Roberts - 3B
  2. Kelly Johnson - 2B
  3. Justin Upton - RF
  4. Stephen Drew - SS
  5. Chris Young - CF
  6. Miguel Montero - C
  7. Juan Miranda - 1B
  8. Gerardo Parra - LF
  9. Micah Owings - P

With Russell Branyan having been released by the team yesterday, I think is a lineup we should get used to seeing. Juan Miranda was 2-for-4 on Wednesday and 3-for-4 on Thursday, so he and Xavier Nady are settling in nicely as a platoon, and Nady can also be used in the outfield. Melvin Mora is still on bereavement so we Ryan "Dread Pirate" Roberts at third base as usual.
