It’s been a wacky series out at Coors Field between the San Francisco Giants and Colorado Rockies, finishing it up with the ‘battle of the ages’ between 22 year old Madison Bumgarner and 49 year old Jaime Moyer.
After the first two freak show baseball games, might as well have another oddity for Thursday game as almost a 27 year gap resides between the two lefties. Both are still looking for their first win of 2012, and would love to lock up a series win for their team in the process.
Buster Posey returns to the starting lineup, batting cleanup, while Nate Schierholtz is in the starting lineup after launching two homers on Wednesday. Brett Pill gets the nod at first base as Aubrey Huff and Brandon Belt get the day off.
San Francisco Giants Lineup:
Colorado Rockies Lineup:
First pitch is set for 12:05 p.m. PT with coverage on CSN Bay Area, KNBR 680 AM in the Bay, and Root Sports TV and KOA 850 AM in Colorado.
