    Giants right fielder Carlos Beltran is out of the lineup for Monday night's series opener against the
     Pittsburgh Pirates because of an injured right hand.       

    Beltran came out of Sunday's 3-1 win over the Phillies after experiencing a sharp pain in the top of his hand while striking out swinging to end the sixth inning. X-rays were negative but Beltran
     had a hard time gripping the bat.

    Nate Schierholtz was starting in right in place of Beltran, batting fifth.       

    Beltran was listed as day to day. He is batting .244 with a double, two triples and two RBIs in 11 games for the Giants since being acquired in a trade from the New York Mets on July 28.
