Giants Vs. Reds, Starting Lineups: Buster Posey Back At First Base

The San Francisco Giants looked like a field full of zombies Tuesday night, getting little rest from their trip to New York before having to turn around and face the Cincinnati Reds just hours later.

Now they've got a full nights rest, and the shellacking they received last game has subsided, they will come out hungry for a victory in today's game with a lineup filled with heavy lumber.

Buster Posey will get another start at first base as Hector Sanchez will be behind the dish once more to catch Barry Ztio, while nasty Nate Schierholtz hopes to continue raking in the sixth spot tonight, starting in right field. Brandon Crawford apparently hyper-extended his elbow on a scary play toward the end of last nights game after falling awkwardly on it trying to avoid a sliding Jay Bruce into second base. He's good to go today though, batting eighth.
