Giants Vs. Dodgers Lineups: Tyler Austin Batting Third in Battle of Lefties

Seemingly on his last shot to remain in the Giants' starting rotation, Drew Pomeranz rewarded manager Bruce Bochy's faith in him when he went five scoreless innings with seven strikeouts in a 2-1 victory over the Dodgers at Oracle Park on June 7. On Wednesday night at Dodger Stadium, Pomeranz will attempt to vex the Giants' longtime rivals once more.

San Francisco got soundly beaten in all phases in a 9-0 loss to Los Angeles on Tuesday night after defeating the Dodgers 3-2 in the opener of the four-game series. The Giants will turn to Pomeranz (2-6, 6.43 ERA) to get back on the winning track, who went another five scoreless innings and got the win in a 5-3 victory over the Brewers in his last start.

Opposing Pomeranz for the Dodgers will be left-hander Rich Hill (4-1, 2.60 ERA), who has been cruising as of late. The only time he failed to go at least six innings in his last six starts was when he struck out six over five innings in a 7-2 win over the Giants on June 8.

The Giants will go with a predominantly right-handed lineup against the southpaw, with Tyler Austin batting third in left field, and Kevin Pillar batting seventh in center. Steven Duggar was a late scratch with lower back tightness.
