Giants vs. Padres, Starting Lineups: Chris Stewart Behind the Dish to Catch Lincecum

The San Francisco Giants are undefeated thus far in the second half of the season and are looking to remain that way Friday night against the San Diego Padres at Petco Park. 

The Giants will be using basically the exact same lineup as yesterday aside from catcher Chris Stewart who will be behind the plate to catch Tim Lincecum this evening. Stewy has become Lincecum's go to battery mate since Buster Posey went down, thus getting the start despite Eli Whiteside's 3-3 night on Thursday. 

Timmy is 6-4 in 15 career starts against San Diego, sporting a 2.20 ERA In those starts. He's season 1-1 with a 3.00 ERA in his starts against them this season, hopefully he can put a another W up against their NL West rivals.
