Giants vs. Indians, Starting Lineups: Andres Torres Returns To Lead Off Giants Offense

The San Francisco Giants will likely have their hands full on this perfect evening at AT&T Park as the first place Cleveland Indians are in town looking to repeat their performance from 2005, their last visit to AT&T. They swept the Giants in three games then, but I think the defending champs will have something to say about that this series.

Andres Torres will be back in the lead-off spot after getting a few ‘mental days’ off, and hopefully will have a few better at bats because of it. Emmanuel Burriss will be at second, Aaron Rowand gets another start but in right field, while Brandon Crawford will be back and shortstop.
