Posey back behind plate for Giants in Game 5

There had been some talk that San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy would have Hector Sanchez catch Barry Zito in Game 5, but Buster Posey is back behind the plate and Brandon Belt back in the lineup against the St. Louis Cardinals (* indicates lefthanded hitter, # indicates switch-hitter):

1. Angel Pagan#, CF
2. Marco Scutaro, 2B
3. Pablo Sandoval#, 3B
4. Buster Posey, C
5. Hunter Pence, RF
6. Brandon Belt*, 1B
7. Gregor Blanco*, LF
8. Brandon Crawford*, SS
9. Barry Zito*, P

The Giants hit St. Louis' Game 5 starter Lance Lynn pretty hard in Game 1, getting five hits (two for extra bases) and four runs off him in 3⅔ innings. Lynn has an 8.59 ERA in four relief appearances and that one start during the 2012 postseason and in regular-season action, members of the Giants' postseason roster are 12-for-33 (.364) against Lynn with two home runs (Posey and Aubrey Huff).
