    Today's Lineup: Kendrick bats third, Knapp in for Rupp

    The Phillies' May woes followed them into their first game of June with a 10-0 loss to the Giants Friday night. 

    Pete Mackanin didn't make any drastic lineup changes for Saturday afternoon's game against Johnny Cueto and the Giants (4:05/CSN/CSNPhilly.com/NBC Sports App). 

    Outfielder Aaron Altherr, who's been a fixture in the lineup, gets the day off. Howie Kendrick will get the nod in left and bat third. Kendrick has been a lone bright spot since returning from the DL. He's 6 for 16, including two hits on Friday. Michael Saunders will be in right and bat fifth.

    Rookie Andrew Knapp will give Cameron Rupp the night off behind the plate. After a slow start, Knapp has picked it up at the dish. He's hit .297 (11 for 37) with three homers and six RBIs in his last 11 starts.
