Peguero gets fifth start of season with Giants

Special to MLB.com

DENVER -- Francisco Peguero, who was recalled from Triple-A Fresno on Thursday and is in his second stint this season with the Giants, started in left field Monday and batted eighth. It was his fifth start of the season with the Giants and the eighth game in which he has played.

Manager Bruce Bochy said it was a good time to get Peguero three or four at-bats and to rest Roger Kieschnick, who had just one hit in his past 12 at-bats.
