Giants vs. Reds Starting Lineups: Nate Schierholtz Back In And All Is Well

A lot of folks were pretty unsure as to why exactly Aaron Rowand was in the lineup in game three and Nate Schierholtz was not. Or rather, they probably just wondered why exactly Rowand was there in lieu of anybody, but that might be a little bit unfair. It seems that bit has been corrected today, and the absence of Schierholtz didn't hurt the Giants too badly, seeing as how Matt Cain got himself a complete game and the Giants got themselves a series victory over the Nationals. So yeah, worked out pretty well. Beyond that, there's no real surprises for San Francisco when it comes to the lineup.

Madison Bumgarner is taking the mound for the Giants, looking for his first win against the Reds and his third win of the season. Johnny Cueto is pitching for the Reds, and he too is looking for his first win against the Giants ... and also his third win of the season. Alright then.
