DENVER -- With Buster Posey taking a day off to rest and recharge, Giants manager Bruce Bochy is going with Aubrey Huff as his cleanup hitter against Rockies right-hander Jhoulys Chacin.

Also, Gregor Blanco stays in the leadoff spot with Angel Pagan moving down to sixth in the order. Bochy said he might go with that alignment.

No Brandon Belt, you'll notice. He was 1 for 10 with five strikeouts in Arizona.
