Giants, Padres lineups: Arias, Torres in against left-hander

SAN FRANCISCO -- Looks like no lingering effects for Pablo Sandoval from the ball he fouled off his right ankle in the seventh inning last night. Sandoval is in today's lineup and playing third. Buster Posey will catch Barry Zito, who has not fared well recently against the Padres -- in his last 11 starts against San Diego, he's 1-7 with a 5.97 ERA.

Here's the Giants' lineup against Padres lefty Eric Stults:

CF Pagan
2B Scutaro
3B Sandoval
C Posey
RF Pence
1B Arias
LF Torres
SS Crawford
P Zito

And the Padres' lineup against Zito:

RF Denorfia
SS Cabrera
3B Headley
1B Guzman
2B Gyorko
LF Blanks
C Hundley
CF Venable
P Stults

Sandoval is 6-for-10 lifetime against Stults with two walks. Joaquin Arias, who gets the start today against the left-hander, also has pretty good career numbers against Stults -- 4-for-10 with a home run.
