Giants Vs. D-backs Lineups: Jeff Samardzija Looks to Deliver Win in Desert

The NL wild-card race is heating up, so it's only fitting the Giants find themselves in the desert.

After taking the first game of a four-game set against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday, the Giants will hand the ball to Jeff Samardzija on Friday.

Bruce Bochy's club currently sits just 3 1/2 games out of the second wild-card spot, but they have three teams in front of them, so there is work to do.

The Giants will trot out a much different lineup than Thursday's 7-0 win. Mike Yastrzemski will lead off and play right, with Buster Posey batting second and doing the catching for Samardzija.
