Tonight's Dodgers-Giants Lineups: Jay Gibbons, Cleanup Hitter

Here are tonight’s lineups for the middle game of the three-game series at AT&T Park in San Francisco:

Dodgers
Furcal SS
Theriot 2B
Ethier RF
Gibbons LF
Blake 3B
Loney 1B
Kemp CF
Barajas C
Billingsley P

This is just the second time the season that Matt Kemp has batted seventh, although with his .312 on-base percentage it’s hard to argue against the move. Jay Gibbons is batting cleanup for the third time as a Dodger.

Giants
Velez LF
Fontenot 2B
Huff 1B
Posey C
Uribe SS
Sandoval 3B
Ross CF
Schierholtz RF
Cain P

The Giants are going with three left-handed bats (Mike Fontenot, Aubrey Huff, and Nate Schierholtz) and two switch-hitters (Eugenio Velez and Pablo Sandoval) against the right-hander Chad Billingsley.
