Giants vs. Diamondbacks, Starting Lineups: Pablo Sandoval, Carlos Beltran Swap Spots in Batting Order

The San Francisco Giants are trying to hang on to the lead in the NL West after the Arizona Diamondbacks swooped into AT&T and took the first two games from the defending champs. The Black and Orange are on a five game losing skid now, but can regain a one game lead in the division today if they can somehow find a way to win a game.

Pablo Sandoval and Carlos Beltran will switch positions in the batting order this afternoon with Beltran moving to clean up and Pablo moving into the third slot. Andres Torres will be back in center field and leading off, moving Cody Ross to left, batting seventh, thus putting Nate Schierholtz back on the bench. Eli Whiteside will be behind the dish to catch Vogelsong, while Aubrey Huff has earned himself another start at first base.
