This will be short and sweet this morning as half of our crew are heading to see the San Francisco Giants at the Los Angeles Dodgers at 1:05 pm PDT/MST. The game will be played at Camelback Ranch, which is home to the Dodgers and the Chicago White Sox.

Back in Scottsdale, the Giants will face the Futures. I haven’t seen the lineup for the Futures yet, but word is Kyle Crick will pitching that game. Madison Bumgarner is staying back to pitch against the Futures. That hardly seems fair to me.

In Camelback, we’ll get to see Edwin Escobar take the mound against Clayton Kershaw. Again, that hardly seems fair. Lineups for both games are below.

Those are the Giants lineups for both games.

News yesterday that Hunter Pence and Michael Morse were injured made some fans panic. Don’t worry too much. Pence expects to be back in the lineup tomorrow. Here is the latest info from John Shea.

Also, Tyler Colvin is out for a couple of days, per Alex Pavlovic.

And finally, Andrew Baggarly put perfect the sentiments of Giants fans everywhere after seen a Vine tweeted of Zack Wheeler taking bunting practice.
