Dodgers lineup vs. San Francisco Giants: Justin Turner makes his return
Justin Turner is back in the Dodgers’ lineup Tuesday against the San Francisco Giants after missing a game with a minor hamstring injury.
Turner will play third base and bat third with veteran right-hander Johnny Cueto on the mound for the Giants.
Julio Urías will start for the Dodgers (22-8) after logging his worst outing week against the Seattle Mariners. The left-hander lasted just 1 2/3 innings.
The clubs will meet at Oracle Park in San Francisco for the first time to begin a three-game series after playing seven games at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers are 4-3 in the season series.
The Giants (14-16) have won five straight games, including a three-game weekend sweep of the Arizona Diamondbacks, to pull into the eighth and final National League playoff spot halfway through the season. If the season ended today, they would face the top-seeded Dodgers.
