Skipper Bruce Bochy and the San Francisco Giants are looking to avoid a season opening sweep at the hands of the Arizona Diamondbacks, hoping some slight tweaks to the lineup will ensure a victory at Chase Field Sunday afternoon.
Gregor Blanco will get his first start of the season, playing center field and leading off in place of Angel Pagan. Emmanuel Burriss will take Ryan Theriot’s spot at second base, batting eighth, bumping Brandon Crawford up to the No. 7 slot in the lineup.
