For the second straight game, Charlie Manuel switched his lineup card.

For the second straight game, Charlie Manuel switched his lineup card.

This time, he moved Placido Polanco back into the No. 2 hole, with Chase Utley backing him up. Raul Ibanez was back in left field and batting seventh. Jimmy Rollins stayed in the six-hole.

“That’s been my lineup most of the year, except for Jimmy at times,” Manuel said.

The Phils skipper said that facing righty Tim Lincecum played a factor.

“I wanted to put as many left-hand hitters as possible, because I figure like we’ve got to score runs on Lincecum,” Manuel said.
