Follow the jump for today's pitching matchup, lineup and conversation on today's game!

Aaron Cook (10-6, 4.32) isn't quite as good as he was last year, when he was an NL All Star, but pitched five shutout innings last time out, after missing over a month. He beat the Brewers on June 11, allowing one run on seven hits with seven strikeouts in six innings.

Manny Parra (11-10, 6.16) is 3-0 in his last four starts, and has posted a 1.88 ERA in three September starts. He's facing the Rockies for the first time this season and trying to finish a pretty rough season with a nice run of quality appearances.

Felipe Lopez 2B
Jody Gerut RF
