Giants Vs. Marlins, Starting Lineups: Brandon Belt Starts At First, Buster Posey Back Behind The Dish

When Matt Cain takes the mound at AT&T Park, good things tend to happen. But the Miami Marlins are looking to continue their hot streak against the San Francisco Giants on their own turf.

Cain hasn’t allowed a run at AT&T since September 13, 2011, but the Marlins are 6-2 since July of 2009 here as well. Something will have to give this evening.

Brandon Belt is back at first base for the Black and Orange, moving Buster Posey back behind the dish. Nasty Nate will be out if right field, batting sixth, while Ryan Theriot and Brandon Crawford fill out the middle infield.

1. Angel Pagan CF
2. Melky Cabrera LF
3. Pablo Sandoval 3B
