Giants mixing it up at designated hitter
ANAHEIM -- Like he did in the Giants' last Interleague series against the Mariners, manager Bruce Bochy is going with three different designated hitters against the Angels.

In the series opener, Pablo Sandoval was the DH and will be followed by Buster Posey on Tuesday and Melky Cabrera on Wednesday.

Sandoval has played four games as a DH in his career with a .333 average (5-for-15), one home run and three RBIs.

Posey's first game as a DH was in the series opener against the Mariners, where he went 2-for-4.

Bochy said he wanted to get Cabrera "off his legs" by playing him as the DH in the finale. He has played in only two games as a DH in his career with two hits in nine at-bats.
