World Series Game 1: Andres Torres In Giants Starting Lineup

We've got the starting lineup for the Giants in Game 1 of the World Series, and there's good news for the team and its fans - Andres Torres is slotted in at the top, leading off and playing center field.

Torres injured his groin and hip sliding into first base during Saturday's Game 6 of the NLCS, and was soon thereafter replaced. However, the injury was considered fairly minor from the beginning, and even if Torres isn't quite at 100%, he's close enough that Bruce Bochy considers him able to start. Truth be told, nobody's going to be at 100% by this point in the year. Everyone's got some aches and pains.

Outside of Torres, the rest of the lineup is similar to the lineup the Giants have been using all postseason. Against the left-handed Cliff Lee, Juan Uribe will play third base, and Edgar Renteria will play shortstop. Both Pablo Sandoval and Mike Fontenot will thus be available off of the bench.

Andres Torres, CF
Freddy Sanchez, 2B
Buster Posey, C
Pat Burrell, LF
Cody Ross, RF
Aubrey Huff, 1B
Juan Uribe, 3B
Edgar Renteria, SS
Tim Lincecum, SP
