The Dodgers welcome the rival Giants to Glendale on Tuesday, the fourth straight game at Camelback Ranch for Los Angeles to open the Cactus League. This is the first of just two spring meetings between the longtime adversaries, who will do battle in Scottsdale on Mar. 8.
Skip Schumaker gets a turn at the leadoff position on Tuesday, the fourth different leadoff hitter for the Dodgers in four days. Schumaker is making his third start in four games, and his second in center field. Here are the starting lineups for both teams:
That is old friend Wilson Valdez starting at third base for San Francisco. He is a non-roster invitee with the Giants. Tim Lincecum starts on the mound for San Francisco.
Josh Beckett starts on the mound for the Dodgers and is scheduled to be followed by Brandon League, Kenley Jansen, J.P. Howell, Gregory Infante, and Kelvin De La Cruz.
Scheduled reserves for the Dodgers are as follows:
Time: 12:05 p.m. PT
Radio: KLAC 570
I ran into Jaime Jarrin this morning at the Dodgers complex. His next spring broadcast on KTNQ is not until Mar. 9, when the Dodgers host the Mariners at Camelback Ranch.
