Giants-Phillies NLCS Game 5: Giants Release Lineup

The San Francisco Giants released their lineup for Game 5 and have brought Andres Torres back to the leadoff spot. Torres had been having an abysmal LCS that led to manager Bruce Bochy replacing him in centerfield with Aaron Rowand. Last night Torres pinch-hit for Madison Bumgarner in the fifth inning (part of a double switch in the top of the inning) and was 1 for 2 with a walk and a run scored.

After being scratched for a pair of games with a wrist contusion, Juan Uribe finds himself back in the lineup, coming off his game winning sacrifice fly last night. Additionally, Pablo Sandoval is at third base for a second straight game after hitting a key RBI double last night.
