Saint Utley hath returneth, and in honor of the occasion, the Phils field one of the more heavenly lineups of the season.
Notes: Charlie Manuel splits the lefties, kinda, and goes Rollins, Utley, Polanco, Howard, Ibanez, Ruiz, Brown, Mayberry. Utley hit second nine times last season. … You might remember the Reds from such exciting sweeps as the exhilarating four-game sweep in July of 2010 to complete a late surge into the All-Star break, then the Division Series sweep of October, when the Phillies' staff erased Joey Votto and the Reds offense from the equation. ... Cole Hamels (5-2, 2.92) starts tonight and has terrific career numbers against the Reds (6-0, 1.07 ERA). Hamels shutout the Reds in Game 3 of the NLDS to complete the quick sweep. … Elsewhere, Jose Contreras pitches a rehab in Lehigh Valley tonight … The Phillies signed former Rockies right-hander Juan Morillo to a minor league contract last week, per Baseball America's transaction page. The Dominican 27-year-old spent last season pitching with Rakuten of Japan. He appeared in nine games with the Rockies and Twins between 2006-09. He's primarily a Triple-A reliever.
