Marco Scutaro in Giants Game 3 lineup

Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday took Giants second baseman Marco Scutaro out with a rough slide in Monday's NLCS Game 2. Scutaro eventually had to leave the game with an apparent hip injury. That hasn't stopped him, though; Scutaro is back in manager Bruce Bochy's lineup for Game 3 (* 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. Matt Cain, P

This lineup will be facing Cardinals righthander Kyle Lohse. Lohse had an excellent season, posting a 2.86 ERA and issuing just 38 walks in 211 innings, but did not face the Giants all year. He's coming off a start in the division series against the Reds in which he allowed just one run in seven innings; however, players on San Francisco's postseason roster are hitting .311 (43-for-138) off Lohse. Ryan Theriot -- who isn't starting -- is a particular Lohse nemesis, going 12-for-22 (.545) with two doubles and two triples.
