Dodgers Vs. Giants: Casey Blake Out Of Starting Lineup For Second Straight Game

The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants open a three-game series Monday night at AT&T Park in San Francisco, renewing their rivalry. The two teams have already met for four games this season, opening the season at Dodger Stadium. Third baseman Casey Blake missed that series while on the disabled list, and it appears he may miss Monday night as well.

Blake, who collided with Chase Headley of the Padres in the final play of Saturday night's 4-0 Dodgers' win at Petco Park, is out of the starting lineup for the second straight contest. Blake was activated from the disabled list on Wednesday when the Dodgers were in Colorado, and has four hits in 11 at-bats in three games. Here are tonight's lineups:

Dodgers (5-4)

Furcal SS
Carroll 2B
Ethier RF
Kemp CF
Uribe 3B
Loney 1B
Thames LF
Barajas C
Kershaw P

Giants (4-5)

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

Tonight's 7:15 p.m. PDT game will be televised by KCAL.
