Giants vs. Braves, Starting Lineup Preview: Pablo Sandoval Back in Lineup Tonight

The San Francisco Giants will be looking to keep the good times rolling as they host the Atlanta Braves for a three game set this weekend. Winners of the last two series, the Giants will have their first ‘orange Friday’ of the year tonight, wearing their throwback orange jerseys that were ever so popular last season.

Pablo Sandoval is back in the lineup tonight after suffering a triceps strain in his right arm during BP in Denver a few days ago. The injury was never really significant and the powers that be felt that giving him a few days off was all that was necessary. He currently is leading the team in OBP (.400) and tied for the lead in home runs (5).

1. Aaron Rowand CF
