Giants Vs. Dodgers, Starting Lineups: Matt Kemp In, Aubrey Huff Out

Even though he was dealing with some hamstring tightness, Los Angeles Dodgers exemplar Matt Kemp will not miss a chance to face San Francisco Giants pitcher Barry Zito, one of his favorite lefties to abuse in the league.

In fact, Kemp has hit two two-run homers in his last two games against Zito, owning a .426 lifetime batting average along against Zito along with an even .500 OBP. But enough about Kemp, lets talk about the Giants.

Aubrey Huff is listed as a reserve for tonight's game in L.A. but is not in the starting lineup, so no minor-league assignment is apparently necessary for him.

Buster Posey gets another start at first base as Hector Sanchez gets the nod to catch Zito, with Brett Pill gets the start in right field, batting fifth. Joaquin Arias will start at shortstop once more as both Brandon Belt and Brandon Crawford will sit against lefty Ted Lilly this evening.
