Tonight's Lineup: Nick Williams, Daniel Nava Sit Vs. Padres Lefty

Nick Williams is out of the Phillies' lineup for a second consecutive night as they take on Padres left-hander Clayton Richard.

Williams is 6 for 23 (.261) seven games into his big-league career with a double, a walk and six strikeouts. Last night was a planned game off for him, and he sits tonight as the Phillies try to load up the righties against the incredibly hittable Richard (see game notes).
