Giants vs. Twins, Starting Lineups: Miguel Tejada Back at Shortstop

As the San Francisco Giants get ready to continue their interleague play, they just happened to be hosting one of the hottest teams in all of baseball. The Minnesota Twins have been on a tear over the past few weeks, winners of their last seven straight and 14 of the last 16. But the Giants are back at AT&T, a place they always seem to have a decided advantage at.

Miguel Tejada is back in the lineup and will be at shortstop this evening, batting second. Aubrey Huff moves back to the clean-up spot, Nate Schierholtz will be in right, Bill Hall at second, and Eli Whiteside behind the dish.

As for the Twinkies Ben Revere will be in center field, leading-off for Minnesota. Michael Cuddyer will bat clean-up with Joe Mauer batting third, and Delmon Young batting fifth. Carl Pavano gets the chance to hit tonight looking to improve on his .145 carrer batting average.
