As Danny Knobler of noted, Matt Holliday was scratched from the lineup with back stiffness.

As for the weather, it looks like it'll be a serviceable night for baseball. According to the hourly forecast, we're looking at high 50s with slight wind, partly cloudy and a very low chance of rain throughout the game. So nothing that will affect the game much, but not really worthy of being called beautiful or something similar.

Also of note: Giants manager Bruce Bochy said in his pregame press conference that starters Tim Lincecum and Madison Bumgarner would both be available out of the bullpen, with Lincecum likely to be used before Bumgarner.
