    After a one-on-one meeting with Pete Mackanin this morning (see story), and a benching in the Phillies' 4-3 win in Game 1 win vs. Nationals, Odubel Herrera will start in centerfield and hit in the two-hole in Game 2 of a doubleheader.

    Mackanin would not divulge any details about the meeting, but it came the morning after Herrera hacked at multiple pitches way out of the strike zone in a rally-killing at bat in Saturday night's loss that capped an 0 for 5 night.

    Herrera earned a bit of redemption with a pinch-hit single up the middle in Game 1 Sunday afternoon.

    Cesar Hernandez remains atop the lineup after going 1 for 4 with a walk in Game 1. He will be joined by fellow Game-1-mainstays Aaron Altherr and Freddy Galvis. 

    Altherr got the Phillies' ninth-inning rally started with a solo shot, his eighth of the year. Galvis went 0 for 3 with a walk in the game.

    Game 2 of the doubleheader starts with Phillies Pregame Live at 6:30 on CSN or CSNPhilly.com (see game notes).

    Here is the Phillies lineup for Game 2:

    1. Cesar Hernandez, 2B
    2. Odubel Herrera, CF
    3. Aaron Altherr, LF
    4. Michael Saunders, RF
    5. Andres Blanco, 3B
    6. Brock Stassi, 1B
    7. Freddy Galvis, SS
    8. Andrew Knapp, C
