Dodgers' third baseman Juan Uribe, who was hit on the left elbow by a Tim Lincecum pitch in Thursday night's opener, was a late scratch from tonight's lineup. Uribe was penciled in to bat fifth tonight, as he will likely be most of the season when the Dodgers face a left-hander, swapping fifth and sixth spots in the order with James Loney. However, Uribe showed up today with swelling in his elbow, and he was removed from the lineup.
Aaron Miles will start at third base in place of Uribe. Uribe went to get x-rays, and manager Don Mattingly said they won't fully know the extent of the injury until those ex-ray results are in. Here is tonight's revised Dodgers lineup:
Ivan DeJesus is making his major league debut for the Dodgers, batting second and playing second base.
Here is the Giants lineup:
San Francisco is using the same eight players in tonight's lineup, but Pablo Sandoval and Miguel Tejada have swapped places in the batting order.
