Tonight's Lineup: Nick Williams Drops 3 Spots to 6th

Nick Williams, 0 for 7 with three strikeouts over his last two games, moves down to sixth in the Phillies' batting order tonight against the Marlins and debuting left-hander Dillon Peters.

Williams had batted third in each of his last 11 games. Rhys Hoskins moves up to occupy the three-spot. It's just the third time Hoskins has batted third. In the previous two games, he went 0 for 4 and 2 for 5 with a solo homer.

Jorge Alfaro is behind the plate to catch Nick Pivetta. Alfaro has quietly been very productive at the plate, hitting in 11 of 12 games and batting .356 (16 for 45) with two doubles and a homer. He has, however, struck out 14 times and walked twice.
