Giants vs. Dodgers, MLB Schedule Preview: Lineups For Tonight's Matchup

After last night’s 6-1 drubbing by the hands of the Los Angeles Dodgers, the San Francisco Giants have begun the season 4-6, with 4 of those losses by the hands of the Dodgers. But with all of the pregame ceremonies and championship hoopla finally over, the G-Men can get back to focusing on one thing and one thing only, winning baseball games.

Good things usually happen for the Giants when ace Tim Lincecum (1-1 0.64 ERA) takes the mound, but the struggling Giants offense will have to compete with another top pitcher from the Dodgers, right hander Chad Billingsley (1-1 8.00 ERA).

Tonight’s lineup for your San Francisco Giants:

CF Aaron Rowand
2B Freddy Sanchez
RF Aubrey Huff
C Buster Posey
3B Pablo Sandoval
LF Pat Burrell
SS Miguel Tejada
1B Brandon Belt
SP Tim Lincecum

Dodgers Lineup:
