Giants v. A's, 2011 Spring Training Preview: Battle of the Bay in Arizona

2011 Spring Training is now well underway, and for bay area sports fans they get their first chance to renew the rivalry between the San Francisco Giants and Oakland A’s as they are set to square off at Phoenix Municipal Stadium today at 12:05 PT (1:05 MT). Both teams are off to a good start in their Cactus League schedule so far, and I bet neither one would like to lose to one another. Even though it’s only Spring Training, I love the rivalry games (like last night ‘s win against the Dodgers) and these two teams have one of the best rivalries in all of baseball. Maybe a little Bay Area World Series preview? I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

Here are you lineups for today’s game:
Giants:
CF Rowand
2B Sanchez
SS Tejada
LF Burrell
3B DeRosa
1B Belt
RF Schierholtz
DH Whiteside
C Stewart
P Bumgarner

A’s
CF Crisp
1B Barton
2B Ellis
DH Willingham
3B LaRoche
RF Taylor
C Powell
LF Choice
SS Sogard
P Anderson

Should be a good game, live broadcast can be found on KNBR 680. Can’t Wait ! (Bart Scott voice)
