Giants vs. Rockies, Starting Lineup Preview: Lineups Set for Today's Matchup

The lineups are set for the second of a three game series between the San Francisco Giants and Colorado Rockies at Coors Field, and should prove to be a great matchup of starting pitchers. Ubaldo Jimenez (0-0 7.50 ERA) is coming off his stint on the DL today to face Jonathan Sanchez (1-1 3.24 ERA) for the Giants, meaning there might be a few strikeouts in the game today.

After his 3-4 showing yesterday Nate Schierholtz will get his second straight start in right field as Brandon Belt will sit again, and Mike Fontenot will start at shortstop to give Miguel Tejada a day of rest.
