Giants v. Diamondbacks, 2011 Spring Training Preview: Giants Look to Get Back To Winning Ways Against D'Backs

The San Francisco Giants are looking to bounce back from only their fifth loss of their Cactus League schedule tonight as they head to the brand new Salt River Fields at Talking Stick tonight to face their NL West compadres the Arizona Diamondbacks. And after the recent roster cuts, their will be a lot more of the familiar faces tonight that in any other game so far this preseason.

This will be the Giants third trip to the brand new shared spring headquarters for both the D’Backs and Rockies, and have had nothing but rave reviews and packed stands since the Cactus League started in February. It will also mark the third night game the Giants have played this spring in which they are undefeated so far in the preseason. Also, there will be no DH for this game as the pitchers will finally try their hands at getting some at bats.

And now, your San Francisco Giants:

CF Andres Torres
2B Freddy Sanchez
1B Aubrey Huff
C Buster Posey
SS Miguel Tejada
LF Pat Burrell
3B Pablo Sandoval
RF Cody Ross
P Madison Bumgarner

First pitch will be at 6:40 p.m. and will only be broadcast through MLB.com (for paid subscribers). Stay with SB Nation Bay Area for a complete postgame wrapup and everything else Giants related.
