Giants Vs. Mets, Starting Lineups: Hector Sanchez, Gregor Blanco Get The Start In Game Two

Tim Lincecum and the San Francisco Giants took care of business in game one of their double-header with the New York Mets, now turning to Madison Bumgarner to close out the series with another W at Citi Field.

A number of the players that took part in game one will sit out game two, though Melky Cabrera, Pablo Sandoval, Emmanuel Burriss and Brandon Crawford remain at their position on the field and in the lineup. Gregor Blanco will leadoff, playing center field, while Hector Sanchez will be behind the plate to catch Bumgarner’s first career start against the Mets. Brett Pill will start over Aubrey Huff at first base.

Pablo Sandoval is one hit shy of tying Willie Mays' record of 16 game hitting streak set back in 1960, something to keep an eye on this evening.
