Giants vs. Reds NLDS Game 4 Lineups: Buster Posey at 1B, Hector Sanchez at C

The San Francisco Giants face another elimination game on Wednesday when they meet the Cincinnati Reds in Game 4 of the 2012 NLDS. The Giants will have a change in the lineup for the 1:07 PT start time, moving catcher Buster Posey to first base to keep him in the lineup. Hector Sanchez takes Posey's spot behind the plate, as Brandon Belt heads to the bench.

The Giants will send Barry Zito to the mound. The lefty went 15-8 with a 4.15 ERA this season. It was his best record since coming to San Francisco in 2007. Zito has faced the Reds once in 2012, taking a loss despite allowing just one run in six innings.

Cincinnati counters with Mike Leake, who was added to the roster after Game 1 starter Johnny Cueto went down with back spasms. Leake has defeated the Giants once this season, a complete game June 29 in which he allowed just one run on nine hits and struck out four.
