NLCS Game 6: Giants lineup versus Roy Oswalt

2 Comments

Here’s the Giants’ lineup for Game 6 of the NLCS against the Phillies and right-hander Roy Oswalt:

1. Andres Torres, CF

2. Freddy Sanchez, 2B

3. Aubrey Huff, 1B

4. Buster Posey, C

5. Pat Burrell, LF

6. Cody Ross, RF

7. Juan Uribe, 3B

8. Edgar Renteria, SS

9. Jonathan Sanchez, P

Nothing too surprising with Bruce Bochy’s lineup, as Juan Uribe starts over Pablo Sandoval at third base. Sandoval is batting .214 (3-for-14) during the postseason and has struggled to hit on the road all season long.

As you can see, with Sandoval out and Uribe and Edgar Renteria in, this lineup is predominantly right-handed. That’s potentially bad news. Roy Oswalt held right-handed batters to a .196 batting average and 578 OPS during the regular season.
