Astros lineup Friday vs. Giants

It’s a typical chilly Friday night at AT&T Park, where the red-hot Astros open a three-game series tonight against the Giants. Felipe Paulino (0-5, 4.67), coming off one of his best starts, pitches against right-hander Todd Wellemeyer (1-3, 5.97 ERA).

Astros manager Brad Mills said he would like to stay away from using closer Matt Lindstrom, who saved all three wins in St. Louis. Brandon Lyon will likely get his first opportunity to close a game with the Astros if the situation presents itself.

Here are the lineups:
