Giants vs. Diamondbacks, Starting Lineup: Giants Looking for Sweep of D'Backs

Despite all of the catastrophic injuries, large amount of minor league call-ups, and a incredible number of tight knit ballgames, the San Francisco Giants still find themselves atop the NL West. How exactly do they do it? No one is absolutely sure. But the G-Men can push themselves even further in front with a win tonight and a sweep over the second place Arizona Diamondbacks.

Aaron Rowand will get another start in center field after his nice showing Wednesday night, while Manny Burriss will play second in lue of Bill Hall, who had himself a nice night on Wednesday as well. Cody Ross and Nate Schierholtz will make up the rest of the outfield barrage, while Brandon Crawford will be back at short, batting seventh.

Your San Francisco Giants:

1. Aaron Rowand CF
2. Manny Burriss 2B
3. Pablo Sandoval 3B
4. Aubrey Huff 1B
5. Cody Ross LF
6. Nate Schierholtz RF
7. Brandon Crawford SS
8. Eli Whiteside C
9. Ryan Vogelsong P

First pitch is scheduled for 6:40 p.m. PT with coverage on NBC Bay Area and KNBR 680 AM.
