    The Phillies' lineup is a bit different after their 11-run outburst Monday.

    Howie Kendrick is back in left field and batting third after sitting for Michael Saunders in the series-opening win.

    Aaron Altherr, who went 3 for 4 with a homer and three RBIs in the three-hole Monday, moves down to fifth.

    Cameron Rupp is back behind the plate to catch Aaron Nola. The Phils are hoping to get Rupp going. He's 5 for 38 over his last dozen games.

    Maikel Franco, the only Phillies position player to go hitless last night, remains in the six-hole.
