Giants vs. Nationals, MLB Lineup Preview: Giants Shake Up Lineup, Hoping to Spark Some Offense

The San Francisco Giants are trying to mix it up this afternoon against the Washington Nationals, starting with a very interesting lineup. Buster Posey will play first base for the first time, well, in a really long time, while Eli Whiteside will take the catching duties for Jonathan Sanchez. Miguel Tejada will move over to third as Mike Fontenot will play shortstop, while the outfield will remain unchanged. Hopefully this shake up will spark some offense for the G-Men, because it was non existent yesterday, and twice in Pittsburgh the series before.

Your San Francisco Giants:

1. Aaron Rowand CF
2. Freddy Sanchez 2B
3. Buster Posey 1B
4. Pat Burrell LF
5. Miguel Tejada 3B
6. Cody Ross RF
7. Mike Fontenot SS
8. Eli Whiteside C
9. Jonathan Sanchez P

Washington Nationals Lineup:

1. Danny Espinosa 2B
2. Rick Ankiel CF
3. Jayson Werth RF

8. Jerry Hairston 3B
