Giants v. Royals, 2011 Spring Training Preview: Giants Look to End Losing Streak Against Royals

After losing their last four games and their starting right fielder for the beginning of the season the San Francisco Giants look to right the ship and tinker with their lineup against the Kansas City Royals tonight at Sunrise Stadium in Sunrise, Arizona.

The Giants will have a much different lineup than they have all Spring Training, looking to fill the void left by Cody Ross and his injured right calf. It will be a game of musical chairs in the outfield untill Ross comes back and will look something like this:

DH Andrew Torres
2B Mark DeRosa
RF Aubrey Huff
LF Pat Burrell
3B Pablo Sandoval
SS Miguel Tejada
1B Brandon Belt
CF Aaron Rowand
C Eli Whiteside
SP Madison Bumgarner

First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 tonight and will be covered only by MLB.com so stay with SB Nation bay area for wrap up of this game and complete Giants coverage.
