Giants vs. Diamondbacks lineups: Evan Longoria replaces Pablo Sandoval

The Giants were shut out by the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday, but manager Bruce Bochy isn't making many changes to his lineup Saturday.

Evan Longoria replacing Pablo Sandoval at third base and batting fifth is the only change from Bochy. Longoria missed Friday's game because of an illness.

Longoria is off to a slow start at the plate this season. The 33-year-old veteran is batting just .228 with six home runs and a lowly .276 on-base percentage.

To get back in the win column, the Giants will send ace Madison Bumgarner to toe the rubber at Chase Field.
