Giants vs. Padres, Starting Lineups: Carlos Beltran Returns to Lineup, Batting Third

The San Francisco Giants are in some serious need of a W. But with Tim Lincecum on the bump and Carlos Beltran back in the lineup that may just be what the doctor ordered for the Black and Orange tonight against the San Diego Padres.

Orlando Cabrera will bat leadoff today with Jeff Keppinger right behind him, while Pablo Sandoval moves to cleanup. Cody Ross and Brandon Belt will join Beltran in the outfield with Belt moving over to left field, and Chris Stewart will be Timmy’s backstop tonight.
