Giants Vs. Rockies, Starting Lineups: Brandon Belt Sits, Nate Schierholtz Starts

With the terrible news that Buster Posey has come down with shingles, the San Francisco Giants are hoping this is not the start of another injury-plagued season.

But the show must go on, now with Hector Sanchez catching Tim Lincecum this evening, batting fifth. Angel Pagan moves back to the leadoff spot while Aubrey Huff gets another day at first base and in the clean up spot. Nate Schierholtz gets the start right field ad Brandon Belt will get another day off.
