Giants stay with same lineup for Game 2

The San Francisco Giants lost Game 1 of the NLCS to the St. Louis Cardinals. They did manage to generate some offense after being behind 6-0, so manager Bruce Bochy is going with the same lineup for Game 2:

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. Ryan Vogelsong, P

This lineup will be facing Cardinals righthander Chris Carpenter, who missed almost the entire 2012 regular season with thoracic outlet syndrome. He returned in September to make three starts, and threw 5⅔ shutout innings against the Nationals in Game 3 of the division series against the Washington Nationals.

Current members of the Giants are hitting .257 (27-for-105) against Carpenter with two home runs, hit by Hunter Pence, who is starting this game, and Xavier Nady, who isn't.
