Giants vs. Athletics Lineups: Buster Posey Playing Again, Batting Fourth

The San Francisco Giants and Oakland Athletics will meet once again on Saturday in interleague play. Following a wild series opener that saw the Giants win by a score of 8-6, the club will turn to Ryan Vogelsong to claim a series victory. The A's will send Tyson Ross to the mound on Saturday, who has struggled to this point in the season thus far.

First pitch from AT&T Park is scheduled for 1:05 p.m. PT. You can find the game on CSN Bay Area and KNBR 680 AM. Here are the lineups for both clubs.

Giants:

Gregor Blanco RF
Brandon Crawford SS
Melky Cabrera LF
Buster Posey C
Angel Pagan CF
Brandon Belt 1B
Joaquin Arias 3B
Emmanuel Burriss 2B
Ryan Vogelsong P

Athletics:

Jemile Weeks 2B
Cliff Pennington SS
Josh Reddick CF
Jonny Gomes LF
Seth Smith RF
Josh Donaldson 3B
Daric Barton 1B
Kurt Suzuki C
Tyson Ross P

No real surprises, although it is encouraging to see Posey playing a day game after a night game. It's also good to see Belt continuing to get starts. We should have a beautiful day for baseball on Saturday.
