Giants vs. Rockies, Starting Lineup Preview: Nate Schierholtz Earning His Way Onto Starting Roster

Nate Schierholtz will get his third straight start in right field tonight as the San Francisco Giants are set to take on the Colorado Rockies. Nasty Nate has been solid with the glove and getting some clutch hits for the G-Men, and will start once again in front of the struggling Cody Ross. Schierholtz has put is his time with the Giants, and in my opinion deserves every start he gets.

Freddy Sanchez is back and second after a couple days off during the road trip, Mike Fontenot gets the start at shortstop and will be batting third once again, a place where he has had some recent success.
