LOS ANGELES -- Manager Joe Torre plans to give most of his regulars either Saturday or Sunday off and a look at the historical stats might provide a clue as to who plays when.

On Saturday, the Giants start two-time Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum. Lifetime against Lincecum, third baseman Casey Blake is 0-for-9 lifetime with six strikeouts, catcher Russell Martin is 0-for-13 with four strikeouts and Matt Kemp is 1-for-12 with six strikeouts. But Ronnie Belliard is 3-for-6 against Lincecum, Garret Anderson is 2-for-4 and Blake DeWitt is 3-for-6.

On Sunday, the Giants start left-hander Barry Zito. Lifetime against Zito, first baseman James Loney is 1-for-20 with six strikeouts and right fielder Andre Ethier is 3-for-18. But Belliard is 11-for-34, Anderson is 21-for-64, Jamey Carroll is 8-for-21 and Reed Johnson is 5-for-14.
