Giants vs. Phillies, Starting Lineups: Chris Stewart Behind the Dish for Lincecum

The San Francisco Giants are in rarified air right now; on the precipice of being swept at AT&T by the Philadelphia Phillies. In a series that has seen dominant pitching from both sides, a lot of offense from the Philly side, and even a little bit of a brawl, these two have grown to seemingly dislike each other very, very much to put it lightly, hopefully setting up a playoff rematch this season if the Giants can get their game together down the stretch.

Nate Schierhlotz will be back in the lineup today, starting in lieft field and batting seventh, while Aubrey Huff will be at first, batting fifth. Chris Stewart will be the backstop today, catching for Tim Lincecum.

If there was a silve lining of this series it would be Buster Posey walking all by himself again, looking forward to getting back to work.
