Giants Vs. Pirates Game 3 Lineups: Brandon Belt Gets Another Chance

The San Francisco Giants will attempt to end their first AT&T Park series of 2012 with a sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday. Giants starting pitching has looked excellent in the first two games on Friday and Saturday. On Sunday, Ryan Vogelsong will make his return as the Giants attempt to climb above .500 for the first time this season.

The game will also feature a rare start by Brandon Belt, the Giants fan favorite who has seemed to be the victim of a perpetual runaround since Opening Day of 2011. He'll get a chance to shine on Sunday, but it could be more bad news for him if he is unable to produce. This will be his first start in five games.

San Francisco Giants Starting Lineup:

1. Angel Pagan - CF
2. Melky Cabrera - LF
3. Pablo Sandoval - 3B
4. Buster Posey - C
5. Nate Schierholtz - RF
6. Brandon Belt - 1B
7. Brandon Crawford - SS
