Talking about some of the players who were in there for the Giants. And since that conversation, the lineup change Brandon Belt who is still just not 100%. And it's a concern for the James because he is so important to their offense belt was scratched with the side tightness still lingering, James, You're gonna have to figure out a way to get him a few days of rest. Maybe something like that to see if they could get that thing cleared up because Even the last couple of games. I think you could see he was compromised with the way he was playing. Just not 100% belt was in there, but now he's not. Here is what the Giants lineup looks like. Mike Talk Hman. He's in center field hitting leadoff Mikey Stransky, the right fielder. Bad second Buster Posey doing the catching, hitting third Alex Dickerson off the injured list today. That's real good news for the James. He's in the cleanup spot now with no belt in there.

Without the express written consent of the San Francisco Giants looks like just a little bit of breeze blowing through Pittsburgh at the moment, it is overcast. James manager Gabe Kapler also told us that but this morning it looked like it was going to stay at best sort of partly sunny, something like that. And so I think that does help the hitters. We've seen how the glare In this ballpark can be tough for hitters, especially in the late afternoon early evening shouldn't be as big of a deal in the mid afternoon like today's game, But still, I think the hitters will appreciate just a little bit overcast. If it stays around. That's what it looks like. It started The game today from PNC Park in Pittsburgh. Beautiful sight with Clemente Bridge connecting the ballpark side of town with downtown. There's lots of boats out on the Allegheny River today. Right near the confluence of the three Rivers. PNC Park, one of the most picturesque ballparks in all of Major League Baseball, James B. And Cincinnati along the banks of the Ohio River, starting tomorrow for a four game series is the road trip continues big game today for the Giants trying toe Bounce back from two straight tough losses. Mitch Keller's ready to go and his first pitch to Mike Talk Man is a fastball right down the middle for a called Strike One talk. Hman had a nice game yesterday through a couple of walks, hit his second Giants home run. Waiting for the old one pitch from the right hander Keller and it's very high with a fastball one in 1105 Eastern time. First pitch time. 70 degrees in Pittsburgh seems just about perfect game time attempt..
