Giants' Brandon Belt: Drops in batting order

Belt is batting fifth in the order during Sunday's game against the Rockies, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Belt has spent the past month primarily hitting out of the three hole for the Giants, but he will find himself batting fifth for the first time this season Sunday. Manager Bruce Bochy hopes that the shift in the order will help jump-start Belt's ice-cold bat, as the 29-year-old is hitless in his previous 17 at-bats. Brandon Crawford will occupy the third spot in the order Sunday.
