Giants Vs. Padres, Starting Lineups: Buster Posey Starts At First (Again), Brandon Belt Sits (Again)

The San Francisco Giants are out to close the series with a victory over the San Diego Padres in Sunday’s afternoon rubber-match matinee.

Despite getting the game-winning hit in last night’s epic victory for the Black and Orange, Brandon Belt is not in the lineup against lefty Clayton Richard, with righty Brett Pill getting the start in left field instead, batting fifth. Buster Posey gets another day out of the squat, starting at first base, while Joaquin Arias and Ryan Theriot will make up the Giants middle infield this afternoon, batting seventh and eighth respectfully.

Madison Bumgarner will be on the mound for San Francisco.
