Dodgers Vs. Giants Starting Lineups: Mark Ellis Gets Routine Night Off.

The Los Angeles Dodgers look to rebound from Tuesday night's loss as they battle the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday night at Dodger Stadium. Chad Billingsley looks for his third win of the season as he takes the mound for the Dodgers.

Billingsley is 2-1 with a 3.19 ERA so far this season in six starts, including 1-0 at Dodger Stadium in two starts. Billingsley has allowed two total runs in those two home starts. Tim Lincecum (2-2, 5.68 ERA) starts for the Giants.

Mark Ellis gets a routine night off for the Dodgers, as manager Don Mattingly will utilize Thursday's off day to give Ellis two days of rest while only missing one game. Mattingly said he would do the same with catcher A.J. Ellis, as Matt Treanor will likely start Friday's series opener against the Colorado Rockies. Adam Kennedy starts at second base for the Dodger on Wednesday.

Here are Wednesday's starting lineups for the series finale against the Giants:

Giants (15-15)

Blanco CF
Burriss 2B
Cabrera LF
Posey C
Belt 1B
Schierholtz RF
Arias 3B
