Giants vs. Rockies, Starting Lineups: Miguel Tejada, Freddy Sanchez Back in Lineup Sunday

The San Francisco Giants have the fourth best home record in the NL at 14-9 so far in 2011, and will look to extended that record Sunday at AT&T Park. They face a Rockies team that has lost eight of their last 10 and have only three road wins since the beginning of May. They also have the pitcher with the lowest ERA in May taking the mound in Ryan Vogelsong (0.57 ERA in May). Sounds like the Giants should win right?

But as they say, that’s why they play the games.

As for Sunday’s lineup, Miguel Tejada and Freddy Sanchez will both be back in at third and second base respectfully, batting second and third respectfully. Eli Whiteside will be back behind the dish to catch Vogelsong, Nate Schierholtz will be in right batting fifth, while Brandon Crawford remains at shortstop batting seventh.
