DENVER -- Giants right fielder Nate Schierholtz made his first start of the season Wednesday as the Rockies started right-hander Jeremy Guthrie with left-hander Jamie Moyer scheduled to start the series finale Thursday.
"I'd hate to get home and Nate not to have one start on this road trip," manager Bruce Bochy said. "This gives us speed in the outfield. He's had success here."
Schierholtz entered Wednesday's game 21-for-75 (.280) at Coors Field with five homers and nine RBIs.
