Scott Rolen back in Dusty Baker's lineup

The Cincinnati Reds have posted their lineup for Thursday afternoon's Division Series elimination game against the San Francisco Giants.

Manager Dusty Baker has returned to the lineup that earned his team victories in Games 1 and 2. This means that rookie Todd Frazier is back on the bench in favor of veteran Scott Rolen, whose costly error in Game 3 made tonight's rubber match possible. Also back in the lineup is catcher Ryan Hanigan, who sat out Game 4 while Dioner Navarro played.

2. Zack Cozart - SS
3. Joey Votto* - 1B
4. Ryan Ludwick - LF
5. Jay Bruce* - RF
6. Scott Rolen - 3B
7. Ryan Hanigan - C
8. Drew Stubbs - CF
9. Mat Latos - P

The Reds knocked Matt Cain out after five innings in Game 1 and hope to do the same in Game 5. They also hope to avoid becoming the first National League team to blow a 2-0 series lead in a Division Series. Game time is set for 1 p.m. Eastern. The game will be broadcast on TBS.
