Giants vs. Dodgers, Starting Lineups: Justin Christian Batting Leadoff, Brett Pill Starts at First

When the Los Angeles Dodgers come to town, it always gets serious, no matter where they or the San Francisco Giants are in the standings. And with a slew of rookies taking the field tonight, it should prove to be an exciting and energetic atmosphere at AT&T for another Orange Friday.

Justin Christian and Brett Pill will get another crack at the starting lineup as Pill looks to become the first player in major league history dating back to 1919 to begin his professional career with three homers in his first three games. He’ll have quite the task in doing so off of Clayton Kershaw though I might add, good luck bud. Chris Stewart will catch Tim Lincecum this evening, while Brandon Belt (once again) gets the night off.

Your San Francisco Giants:

1. Justin Christian CF
2. Jeff Keppinger 2B
3. Carlos Beltran RF
4. Pablo Sandoval 3B
5. Brett Pill 1B
6. Cody Ross LF
7. Orlando Cabrera SS
8. Chris Stewart C
9. Tim Lincecum P

Los Angeles Dodgers Lineup:

1. Dee Gordon SS

9. Clayton Kershaw P

First pitch is set for 7:15 pm PT this evening with coverage on CSN Bay Area and KNBR 680 AM.
