    Tonight's lineup: Rhys Hoskins and Nick Williams move up a spot

    With right-hander Dan Straily on the mound for the Marlins, Rhys Hoskins, aka the "alien", and Nick Williams move up a spot in the Phillies' lineup.

    Hoskins bats third, followed by Williams and Aaron Altherr. J.P. Crawford gets his second straight start at second base. The only positional difference in the lineup is Cameron Rupp replacing Jorge Alfaro behind the plate.

    Last night was an extremely productive one for the Phillies' young core. Hoskins, Williams and Crawford combined for six extra-base hits and reached base 13 times in 23 plate appearances, while Odubel Herrera had three hits out of the leadoff spot.
