Giants vs. Diamondbacks lineups: Buster Posey behind the plate after day off

After missing a start Saturday, Buster Posey will be back in the lineup as the Giants finish out the series against the Diamondbacks.

Madison Bumgarner has starting honors for the Orange and Black, and he is coming off a 4-2 win over the Rockies on Tuesday. He's an even 11-11 record and a 2.58 ERA in 34 games against Arizona, so this isn't his first rodeo.

He and the Giants will face Robbie Ray, with Carson Kelly behind the dish. Kelly, like Posey, had Saturday off.

At Oracle Park, Ray is 4-1 with a 2.34 ERA across six career starts.

Here are how the lineups shape up with as the Giants host the D-backs for the last game of the series.

Giants vs. D-backs lineups: Brandon Crawford out for second straight game

It was a long one on Thursday that ended in disappointment. The Giants fell to the Braves, 5-4, in 13 innings thanks to an Austin Riley homer -- he had his fifth long ball in nine games to set a modern-day franchise record.

That's cool.

But Friday is a new day and it's a new series for the Orange and Black as the team preps to take on the Arizona Diamondbacks in an NL West matchup.

For the Giants, Drew Pomeranz will have starting pitching honors. His last start on the bump was also against the D-backs. He gave up two runs in 4 and 2/3 innings in his first start since returning from the injured list.

He's currently 0-3 with a 7.76 ERA in nine career appearances against Arizona.

On the other side, Robbie Ray will get the ball for his second straight start against the Giants. He tossed 87 pitches in four innings Sunday at Chase Field allowing four walks, three hits and two runs on six strikeouts. 

The Giants will be starting without Brandon Crawford Friday -- it's his second straight missed game as he battles pink eye.

The Giants' bats were muy caliente against the Arizona Diamondbacks in their 8-5 victory on Saturday.

On the mound, Madison Bumgarner continued his Chase Field dominance. He allowed four runs and five hits with six strikeouts in 6 1/3 innings in the NL West matchup and now boasts a 6-1 record with a 2.58 ERA in his last 12 starts at a location batters thrive in. 

On Sunday, it's Drew Pomeranz who receives starting honors on the bump for the Orange and Black. This is his first start since coming off the injured list after suffering a left lat strain at the beginning of May. His last outing didn't create the best of circumstances -- the lefty allowed seven runs in just 1 2/3 innings against the Reds, ballooning his ERA to 5.93.

The Giants will face D-backs left-hander Robbie Ray, who had a dazzling performance in his last outing against the San Diego Padres on Monday. He allowed just two runs over five frames and reached the 800th-career strikeout mark.

Brandon Belt is out of the lineup for the Giants with Donovan Solano starting at shortstop. Brandon Belt is also out of the lineup with Tyler Austin covering first base.

First pitch is scheduled for 1:10 p.m. PT on NBC Sports Bay Area and streaming on the MyTeams app.
