Melvin Sticking With Same Rotation In NLCS

Arizona manager Bob Melvin will stick with the same rotation in the NL championship series that he used or planned to use in the Diamondbacks' division series against the Chicago Cubs.

After ace Brandon Webb goes in Game 1 against Colorado on Thursday night, Arizona will start lefty Doug Davis in Game 2 Friday.

Right-hander Livan Hernandez will be the Game 3 starter on Sunday night, followed by rookie right-hander Micah Owings in Game 4 on Monday.

Owings did not pitch in the division series because Arizona swept in three games. He pitched in an instructional league game in Tucson on Tuesday.

Melvin said he is not inclined to use Webb on three days' rest for Game 4. That would give his best pitcher an extra day off before Game 5 on Oct. 17 in Denver.
