Giants vs. Indians, Starting Lineups: Andres Torres Returns To Lead Off Giants Offense

The San Francisco Giants will likely have their hands full on this perfect evening at AT&T Park as the first place Cleveland Indians are in town looking to repeat their performance from 2005, their last visit to AT&T. They swept the Giants in three games then, but I think the defending champs will have something to say about that this series.

Andres Torres will be back in the lead-off spot after getting a few ‘mental days’ off, and hopefully will have a few better at bats because of it. Emmanuel Burriss will be at second, Aaron Rowand gets another start but in right field, while Brandon Crawford will be back and shortstop.

1. Andres Torres CF
