Tonight's Lineup: Tommy Joseph Gets Second MLB Start

With the Marlins' throwing a lefty (Adam Conley), Phillies newcomer Tommy Joseph is back in the lineup for tonight's game, as the Phillies start a three-gam set with the Fish. 

Joseph was called up from Triple A Lehigh Valley on Friday and made his MLB debut that night. But Ryan Howard started at first base on both Saturday and Sunday. 

Joseph in his second start with the big club, will bat fifth tonight after batting sixth on Friday. He and Freddy Galvis are flipped for tonight. 

In his debut, Joseph went 0 for 3 with one walk, a run scored and two strikeouts. He's still looking for his first major league hit. 

Carlos Ruiz is back in the cleanup spot, where he batted on Friday, while Peter Bourjos is back in the lineup and in right field after David Lough played on Sunday.  

Jerad Eickhoff (1-5, 4.43) gets the start for the Phillies.
