Giants vs. Indians, Starting Lineups: Chris Stewart Makes Fourth Start in a Row Behind the Dish

The San Francisco Giants are in line to sweep the Cleveland Indians at AT&T Park, trying to repay the favor for the Tribe’s sweep of the Giants during their last visit to AT&T in 2005.

Catcher Chris Stewart will get his third straight start of the series and fourth in a row as Eli Whiteside is still dealing with some leg issues. Stewart caught Timmy’s gem on Thursday then Cain’s great start Saturday, and really is starting to look more comfortable catching for the guys and helping to call the game for them.

Bill Hall with get the start at second base this evening and bat seventh while Brandon Crawford will start at short as Miguel Tejada will get a day off.
