Giants vs. Reds: Game 3 starting lineups

The odds are against the San Francisco Giants as they try to dig themselves out of an 0-2 hole in their best-of-five series with the Cincinnati Reds, and they'll look to right-hander Ryan Vogelsong to try to right the ship at Great American Ballpark on Tuesday.

Vogelsong (14-9, 3.37) had a stellar first half of the 2012 season -- going 7-4 with a 2.36 ERA before the All-Star break -- but struggled a bit in the second half, which had most Giants fans thinking Tim Lincecum might get the Game 3 start.

The Reds will counter with Homer Bailey (13-10, 3.68). The right-hander is coming off a perfect game less than two weeks ago, and will try to follow it up with a playoff-clinching win for the Reds.

The starting lineups are as follows:

San Francisco Giants

  1. Angel Pagan (S) CF
  2. Marco Scutaro (R) 2B
  3. Pablo Sandoval (S) 3B
  4. Buster Posey (R) C
  5. Hunter Pence (R) RF
  6. Brandon Belt (L) 1B
  7. Gregor Blanco (L) LF
  8. Brandon Crawford (L) SS
  9. Ryan Vogelsong (R) P

Cincinnati Reds

  1. Brandon Phillips (R) 2B
  2. Zack Cozart (R) SS
