Tim Lincecum (0-1, 9.90 ERA) will look to rebound from his last shaky outing against Arizona last Wednesday. Lincecum allowed  7 H, 7 ER in four innings pitched. But he does pitch well against the Dodgers so a rebound tonight is expected.

Josh Beckett (0-0, 9.00 ERA)  is starting for the Dodgers and in his first start of the season against Detroit, he pitched four innings with a no decision allowing 5 hits and 4 ER.

Here’s how the Giants match up against Beckett.


It looks like Jeremy Affeldt will be activated tomorrow, who will the Giants send down to Triple-A Fresno to make room for Affeldt on the 25-man roster?

Happy Jackie Robinson Day!
