What to look for on Thursday

DENVER — Manager Bruce Bochy said after Wednesday’s 11-1 loss to the Colorado Rockies that he’d probably make a couple of changes to the lineup for Thursday’s series finale.

One likely will be giving shortstop Edgar Renteria a rest, Bochy said. This will mean playing time for Juan Uribe, who hit the ball hard in his only at-bat Wednesday (a smash to shortstop) after entering the game late. He drove in San Francisco’s only run with that grounder.

As I pointed out in the game preview, first baseman Rich Aurilia has hit .300 lifetime (6-for-20) against Thursday’s starter, Jason Marquis. But Aurilia hasn’t started against a right-handed pitcher all season. Let’s see how that plays out.

By the way: The 11-1 score equaled the Giants’ worst margin of defeat this season. It happened in the Dodgers’ home opener on April 13, too.

Well, I guess it worked! We won! :D I see Aurilia didn’t do too well, though… :/
