Dodgers Vs. Giants: Matt Kemp, Juan Uribe Return To Starting Lineup

The Los Angeles Dodgers return home Monday night to open an eight-game homestand against National League West foes. Monday begins a three-game series with the rival San Francisco Giants, their first visit to Dodger Stadium this season.

Matt Kemp did not start on Sunday due to a tight left hamstring, but he is back in the starting lineup on Monday night. Juan Uribe returns to the starting lineup for the first time in a week after battling a left wrist injury. Uribe, who made one pinch hitting appearance in the last five games, saw a specialist on Monday morning.

Monday's series opener features a pair of crafty left-handers opposing one another on the mound, with Ted Lilly starting for the Dodgers and Barry Zito getting the call for the Giants. Here are the starting lineups for Monday's series opener:
