Kennedy, a 21-game winner and a major part of the D-backs' success, is expected to take the ball in Game 1 in what will be his postseason debut. He went at least seven innings 20 times in 33 starts this season and allowed one run or fewer in 16.

Gallardo will start his second Game 1 in three years, but the circumstances are vastly different. He was one start removed from knee surgery in 2008 when he took the mound in Philadelphia and gutted through four innings.

Lohse might have been an easy choice for Game 1. The 32-year-old got the better of Roy Halladay on Sept. 19, when he went 7 1/3 innings without allowing an earned run in a 4-3 victory at Citizens Bank Park.

Halladay had a Cy Young-caliber season, although Clayton Kershaw is likely to win it. But Halladay pitched splendidly on arguably baseball's most dominating rotation in decades. He is the aces of the aces, and don't let anybody tell you differently.

Shields came within one out of pitching his 12th complete game of the season when he picked up the win Monday night against the Yankees. The right-hander has enjoyed his finest Major League season, compiling an impressive 249 1/3 innings.
