Tonight's Lineup: Rupp back behind the plate
Share This Post

Cameron Rupp is back behind the plate for the Phillies in Tuesday night’s game against the Miami Marlins.

Rupp, who has two hits in 10 at-bats in 2014, will be making his fourth start of the season. Koyie Hill started at catcher during Sunday’s 3-2 loss to the Braves.

The rest of the lineup is the same as on Sunday.

Coming off of a 2-6 homestand that ended with a four-game sweep at the hands of the Braves, the Phillies are now 36-46 on the season and opening up a 10-game road stretch tonight in Miami. They split a four-game series with the Marlins last week.

A.J. Burnett will start on the mound tonight for the Phillies. The right-hander has gone at least seven innings in six of his last seven starts.

Burnett will be opposed by Henderson Alvarez, who is 1-0 with a 1.83 ERA and 11 strikeouts in three starts against the Phillies this season.

Phillies Lineup:

1. Ben Revere, CF
2. Jimmy Rollins, SS
3. Chase Utley, 2B
4. Ryan Howard, 1B
5. Marlon Byrd, RF
6. Cody Asche, 3B
7. Domonic Brown, LF
8. Cameron Rupp, C
9. A.J. Burnett, P
