ARLINGTON, Texas -- Pat Burrell, who struck out four times in Game 3 and is hitless in the World Series (0-for-9), returns to the San Francisco Giants' lineup as the designated hitter for tonight's Game 5. After taking a seat to clear his head and work on his swing, Burrell will hit seventh against the Texas Rangers.

Game 4 hero Aubrey Huff, who hit a two-run homer in the second inning, drops from third to sixth in the order. Aaron Rowand will also make his first start of the World Series in center field, which moves Cody Ross to left field and Andres Torres to right field.

Here's the Giants' lineup:

RF Andres Torres (S)
2B Freddy Sanchez
C Buster Posey
LF Cody Ross
3B Juan Uribe
1B Aubrey Huff (L)
DH Pat Burrell
SS Edgar Renteria
CF Aaron Rowand
P Tim Lincecum (3-1, 2.79 ERA)
