Giants vs. Rockies Game Two Lineups Out, Buster Posey Out Of Cleanup

It wasn't the best of game ones for the San Francisco Giants, but it feels more like a mental error led to the eventual 7-4 loss at the hands of the Colorado Rockies. Now, we'll begin a new matchup as Jonathan Sanchez takes the mound for San Francisco, dueling Ubaldo Jimenez, still searching for his first win on the season (0-3).

Both teams have shuffled their lineups for the final outing of this two-game set, the Rockies in an attempt to deal with the lefty Sanchez, and the Giants to try and force the split to maintain their National League West lead, currently up half a game as it stands. Of note today for San Francisco is Buster Posey batting third, no longer hitting cleanup, and Mike Fontenot at second base in place of Freddy Sanchez, who has the day off. The Rockies have switched around the back-end of their lineup as well from game one.
