Giants vs. Phillies Lineups: Andres Torres Returns, Ryan Howard Sitting For Philly

The San Francisco Giants and Philadelphia Phillies will continue their four-game series tonight with Jonathan Sanchez and Vance Worley on the mound. Each team has made a few slight adjustments to their lineups.

Giants:

1. Andres Torres (S) CF
2. Jeff Keppinger (R) 2B
3. Carlos Beltran (S) RF
4. Pablo Sandoval (S) 3B
5. Aubrey Huff (L) 1B
6. Orlando Cabrera (R) SS
7. Nate Schierholtz (L) LF
8. Eli Whiteside (R) C
9. Jonathan Sanchez (L) P

Andres Torres is back in the lineup after sitting last night against Cliff Lee. Orlando Cabrera continues to bat sixth. Hey, it's better than fifth, right? Carlos Beltran will look to have a big game against the team who nearly acquired him at last week's trade deadline.

Phillies:

1. Jimmy Rollins (S) SS
2. Placido Polanco (R) 3B
3. Shane Victorino (S) CF
4. Chase Utley (L) 2B
5. Hunter Pence (R) RF
6. Raul Ibanez (L) LF
7. John Mayberry (R) 1B
8. Brian Schneider (L) C
9. Vance Worley (R) P

The big name missing is Ryan Howard, though Carlos Ruiz is also out of Friday's game. It is also interesting to see the left-handed Raul Ibanez in the lineup in favor of John Mayberry, who hit a home run in Thursday night's game.

First pitch is scheduled for 7:15.
