World Series Game 4 lineups: Ryan Theriot at DH?

By Matt Snyder | Baseball Writer

DETROIT -- The Giants lead the World Series 3-0 with Game 4 set for 8:07 p.m. ET/5:07 p.m. PT Sunday. The lineups are out, and one thing in particular stood out to me: Ryan Theriot is the Giants' designated hitter.

Theriot had a .321 slugging percentage with zero homers during the regular season, so he's the polar opposite of a traditional DH. And the funny thing is, everything Giants manager Bruce Bochy has done this series has worked out, so seeing Theriot collect an extra-base hit wouldn't even be remotely surprising.

Anyway, the lineups.

1. Angel Pagan, CF
2. Marco Scutaro, 2B
3. Pablo Sandoval, 3B
4. Buster Posey, C
5. Hunter Pence, RF

8. Ryan Theriot, DH
9. Brandon Crawford, SS

4. Prince Fielder, 1B
5. Delmon Young, DH

7. Jhonny Peralta, SS
8. Omar Infante, 2B
9. Gerald Laird, C
SP: Max Scherzer, RHP
