    Giants vs. Rockies lineups: Five batters back in for doubleheader Game 2

    The Giants' bats are scorching hot right now, so it's understandable if certain guys don't want to sit out a game.

    After a historic eight-RBI effort in the Giants' 19-2 win in Game 1 of the doubleheader against the Rockies, shortstop Brandon Crawford will start Game 2 on Monday night.

    Rookie Mike Yaztrzemski is also back in the lineup after collecting four hits in the first game.

    Brandon Belt, Kevin Pillar and Pablo Sandoval are the other three Giants hitters that will start both ends of the doubleheader.

    Following Game 1, the Giants optioned Ray Black back to the minor leagues and recalled Dereck Rodriguez, who will start Game 2. In 17 major-league appearances this season, the 27-year-old is 3-5 with a 5.27 ERA.
