Tonight's Lineup: Freddy Galvis Bumped From 2-hole

It seems like an odd time to shake up the Phillies' lineup, but Pete Mackanin has done just that for tonight's matchup with the Braves (7:05 p.m./NBC10/CSNPhilly.com).

Coming off a 10-3 win Friday, Freddy Galvis has been moved from the two-hole. He'll be moved down to the seventh spot in the order. Galvis had really excelled in the two-hole, hitting .287/.343/.471 when batting second this season. 

Taking his spot is the red-hot Aaron Altherr. Altherr is 4 of 8 since returning from the DL with two homers and a triple. The biggest bright spot in the Phillies' everyday lineup this season, Altherr has bumped his average to .294 to go along with 16 homers and 46 RBIs in 279 at-bats.
