Lilly, Dodgers Battle Cain, Giants On Fox

The Dodgers send Ted Lilly to the hill today, looking for the same result of the first two games of their series against the Giants. The Dodgers won each of the first two games by one run, but have been helped by five errors by San Francisco. Juan Uribe, who missed last night's game with a sore left elbow after getting hit by a pitch on opening day, is sitting out today as well.

Matt Cain is 2-8 in his career against the Dodgers, but he has pitched well, with a 3.76 ERA. He lost his first eight career decisions against L.A., but rebounded to beat them twice in the second half last season. Here are today's lineups, which feature a third left fielder in as many days for the Dodgers and a new leadoff hitter for the Giants:

Giants (0-2)

Tejada SS
Sanchez 2B
Huff RF
Posey C
Burrell LF
Belt 1B
DeRosa 3B
Rowand CF
Cain P

Dodgers (2-0)

Miles 3B
DeJesus 2B
Ethier RF
Kemp CF
Loney 1B
Gimenez C
Paul LF
Carroll SS
Lilly P

Today's 1 p.m. game will be televised by Fox.
