I haven't been downstairs yet, but Jim Moorehead of the Giants said tonight's lineup has two major changes. Emmanuel Burriss and Edgar Renteria are swapping places, Burriss hitting second and Renteria eighth. Also changing places are Pablo Sandoval and Fred Lewis, Sandoval batting third and Lewis fifth, which happened a lot last year toward the end of the season.
I'll report the specific reasons for the switches after talking to manager Bruce Bochy.
Meanwhile, Travis Ishikawa sits and Rich Aurilia plays against another lefty, Eric Stults.
