Skipper Bruce Bochy had been rather steady with his lineups compared to seasons past, but has his first real switcharoo with Buster Posey getting his first start of the season at first base, just like Boch had promised. Hector Sanchez will be behind the dish catching Barry Zito once again as those two have obviously built a nice rapport, while Brett Pill gets another start, this time in left field and batting fifth.
The Giants are going almost all-right handed against Jon Niese tonight, with Brandon Crawford the only true lefty in the lineup as Angel Pagan, Pablo Sandoval, Hector Sanchez, and Emmanuel Burriss are all switch-hitters.
