Giants vs. Nationals, Starting Lineup Preview: Lineups Set for Today's Game

After the big shake up in yesterday’s lineup that saw Buster Posey at first base for the first time in a long time, skipper Bruce Bochy decided to take a more standard approach with today’s lineup; except for a few things. Pat Burrell has been moved into the cleanup spot, who has been batting .317 in his last 13 games of the season, and is 1-2 lifetime against Jordan Zimmerman. Nate Schierholtz will give Cody Ross a day off in right field, while Miguel Tejada and Mike Fontenot will play third base and shortstop respectively again today as well.
