Giants vs. Diamondbacks, Game Preview: NL West Champs begin preparations for postseason

The Giants' rest is over and the regulars are back in action on Tuesday as San Francisco looks to get into postseason form against the Arizona Diamondbacks in the final series of the year between the divisional foes.

The NL West champions will start fresh with ace Tim Lincecum on the mound against the Diamondbacks. Lincecum has looked like his old self in the last two months, which bodes well for the Giants in the postseason as they'll lean on Lincecum at the top of the rotation. Lincecum has a 3.01 ERA with 54 strikeouts and 28 walks in 59 innings since July 31.

Lincecum will face Josh Collmenter, whose last start was July 27 against the Mets. Collmenter is 4-3 with a 3.92 ERA in 26 appearances this season, nine being starts.

Game Time: 7:15 p.m. PT

Television Coverage: CSN-Bay Area

Radio Coverage: KNBR 680, KTRB 860
