Giants vs. Marlins, Starting Lineups: Nate Schierholtz Starting in Right Field, Batting Fifth

If you’re a visting ball club heading to AT&T Park as of late, you probably aren’t too excited about facing the team that plays there.

That’s because the San Francisco Giants have swept the last three series in a row there, while accruing seven demoralizing walk-off wins to their opponents on their home turf already. Every team is only as strong as it’s weakest player, but the Giants aren’t looking too weak in many departments as of late.

Nate Schierholtz, Thursday & Sunday’s hero last week for the G-Men, will get the start in right field this afternoon, moving Cody Ross to left and Pat Burrell to the bench. Mike Fontenot and Miguel Tejada will take care of the left side of the diamond at shortstop and third respectfully.

Your San Francisco Giants:

1. Andres Torres CF
2. Freddy Sanchez 2B
3. Aubrey Huff 1B
4. Buster Posey C
5. Nate Schierholtz RF
6. Cody Ross LF
7. Mike Fontenot SS
8. Miguel Tejada 3B
9. Matt Cain P

Florida Marlins Starting Lineup:

1. Chris Coghlan CF
2. Hanley Ramirez SS
3. Logan Morrison LF
4. Gaby Sanchez 1B
5. Greg Dobbs 3B
6. Mike Stanton RF
7. John Buck C
8. Omar Infante 2B
9. Ricky Nolasco P

First pitch is scheduled for 7:15 PT this evening with coverage on CSN Bay Area and KNBR 680 AM.
