Giants vs. Rockies, Starting Lineup Preview: Brandon Belt Out, Nate Schierholtz In Today's Lineup

For the first time of the 2011 season outfielder Nate Schierholtz will see his name on the starting lineup card today as the San Francisco Giants take on the Colorado Rockies in the first of a three game set at Coors Field. Brandon Belt was left off the starting lineup and is seriously in jeopardy of being demoted back to AAA Fresno once Cody Ross returns from the DL in the next few days. Belt’s benching moves Aubrey Huff back to first base, while Pablo Sandoval makes his fourth straight appearance in the 5th spot in the order and is looking to stay hot at the plate.
