2012 NLDS: Giants keep same lineup as well

Well, this is boring. Just like the Cincinnati Reds, the San Francisco Giants are sticking with the same lineup they had in Game 1. With the Reds unlikely to start a lefty -- unless Johnny Cueto can't go again this series -- this is probably going to be the default lineup for the rest of the series:

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. Madison Bumgarner - LHP

Of note: Bumgarner is the power threat at the bottom of that lineup.

This was the lineup against righties for most of September, though earlier in the season, Gregor Blanco led off. Blanco slumped, though, eventually getting his job back only when Melky Cabrera was suspended for performance-enhancing drugs in August.
