The Phillies (37-48) will look to win two in a row for the first time in two weeks as they visit Pittsburgh tonight and begin a three-game series with the surging Pirates (44-41) at 5:05 p.m. on CSN (see game notes).
Tony Gwynn Jr. gets the start in left field tonight and bats eighth. Gwynn only has two hits in 14 at-bats since June 1.
Cameron Rupp will sit in favor of Koyie Hill. Rupp caught last night's game and had a 2-out, 2-run double in the 6th inning of a 5-4 victory over the Marlins (see game story).
In 10 at-bats this year, Hill has two hits and three strikeouts.
