Tonight's Lineup: Sticking With It After Four Hits Monday

The Phillies were winning for nearly all of Monday's night before Jeanmar Gomez blew a save, and the team eventually lost 3-2 in 11 innings to the Miami Marlins. Despite this loss, Phillies manager Pete Mackanin decided to go with the same group of eight fielders, in the exact same order, as Monday night.

The only difference in the lineup is the pitcher — Vince Velasquez will be on the mound to start after Aaron Nola got the start Monday.

The Phillies have struggled to get hits recently, combining for just five in the past two games. They also were struck out 18 times in Monday's game, and only five other teams have had more strikeouts in a game this year. They'll hope to get some more production from Tommy Joseph, who's batting .480 (12 for 25) since July 4.
