SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Madison Bumgarner will pitch Game 2 of the World Series for San Francisco on Thursday, giving the Giants back-to-back lefties after Barry Zito goes in the opener against the Detroit Tigers.

Righty Ryan Vogelsong will pitch Game 3 and Matt Cain will go in Game 4. Two-time NL Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum will remain in the bullpen, providing options.

The Giants are still finalizing their roster, though manager Bruce Bochy reiterated All-Star game MVP Melky Cabrera will not be added. Cabrera received a 50-game suspension Aug. 15 for a positive testosterone test and was eligible to return for the NL championship series. San Francisco insisted he wouldn't come back this postseason.
