Tuesday's Giants lineup: Posey off, Scutaro in

SAN FRANCISCO -- Buster Posey gets a night off tonight, while Marco Scutaro stays in the lineup as he tries to work through his timing issues at the plate. Hector Sanchez will catch Tim Lincecum as the Giants try to make it eight in a row against the Rockies. Bruce Bochy had said he intended to give Posey a rest day either tonight or tomorrow.

Here's the Giants' lineup:

CF Pagan
2B Scutaro
3B Sandoval
RF Pence
1B Belt
LF Blanco
C Sanchez
SS Crawford
P Linceucm

And the Rockies' lineup against Lincecum:

CF Fowler
2B Rutledge
LF Gonzalez
SS Tulowitzki
RF Cuddyer
1B Helton
C Rosario
3B Nelson
P Nicasio

Helton starts after getting last night off (he pinch hit in the ninth and struck out). The veteran has pretty good numbers lifetime against Lincecum: 14-for-39 with a home run, nine walks and six strikeouts.
