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.
