Prado a late scratch due to illness

SAN FRANCISCO -- Martin Prado, originally scheduled to bat fifth and start at left field Saturday evening, was scratched due to an illness, the team announced a little less than an hour before the first pitch against the Giants.

"He's been sick," manager Kurt Gibson said. "Congested, something in his sinuses."

Adam Eaton moved from center field to take Prado's place defensively, as well as going from batting leadoff to batting second. Second baseman Aaron Hill moved from second in the lineup to fifth.

A.J. Pollock was inserted to the lineup, batting first and playing center field. He went 1-for-5 with one strikeout.
