Rookie Jose Pirela was in the starting lineup for the first time in the major leagues as a third baseman. Pirela got the start as manager Andy Green looked to overload the order with right-handed hitters to go against lefty Madison Bumgarner. Pirela had a double in three at-bats.
C Austin Hedges, who wasn’t in the starting lineup Saturday, could be down again Sunday. Hedges is still groggy from taking a foul tip off his mask in the series opener Friday.
