Tonight's Lineup: If It Ain't Broke, Don't Fix It

The Phillies scored eight runs in a rout of the Braves on July 4, so why change anything? The Phils' lineup remains the same for Tuesday's matchup with Atlanta right-hander Mike Foltynewicz.

All-Star candidate Odubel Herrera, hitting .351 over his last eight games, leads off. Peter Bourjos, hitting .477 in his last 65 at-bats, bats second. That duo has set the table nicely for the Phillies of late, combining for 16 runs scored over the last seven games. The Phils are 6-1 over that span (see game notes).

Tommy Joseph starts at first base despite Ryan Howard's success in a small sample vs. Foltynewicz (3 for 4, HR).
