Today's lineup: Rollins and Ruiz sit, Byrd back
Share This Post

Jimmy Rollins and Carlos Ruiz are out of the lineup this afternoon as the Phillies finish a three-game series with the Mets.

It's a standard day-game-after-night-game off for the Phils' pair of 35-year-olds. Rollins was instrumental in Tuesday night's win, homering and scoring two runs. Ruiz is 5 for 8 in the series.

Andres Blanco gets the start at shortstop, and Wil Nieves is behind the plate to catch Kyle Kendrick.

Marlon Byrd, who sat Tuesday, is back in the lineup in the five-hole.

Grady Sizemore bats second and plays left field in place of Domonic Brown. Sizemore hit his first homer as a Phillie on Tuesday, a towering shot to right field that clanged off the foul pole.

Here's the full lineup:

1) Ben Revere, CF
2) Grady Sizemore, LF
3) Chase Utley, 2B
4) Ryan Howard, 1B
5) Marlon Byrd, RF
6) Cody Asche, 3B
7) Wil Nieves, C
8) Andres Blanco, SS
9) Kyle Kendrick, P
