Melvin going with Webb, Davis, Hernandez, Owings in NLDS
PHOENIX -- 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.
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.
