Shane Victorino will be on the sidelines again and Michael Martinez will be in center field when the Phillies return home for a short set with the West-leading Rockies. [Lineup via Phillies Twitter]
Beerleaguer: The other issues is that John Mayberry starts in right instead of Ben Francisco, who is hitting .098 with no extra-base hits in 15 games. Mini-Mart, who was argueably the best player in yesterday's loss, starts for Victorino again; Vic could very well end up on the disabled list with this hamstring strain, it seems. On a positive note, Carlos Ruiz is back behind the plate. However, there could still be a move pending with Michael Stutes back/side in question. That's a problem because the Phillies are beginning to run out of fresh, capable arms to pull from in Lehigh Valley.
Standings: Phillies 25-16, 0.5 lead on Florida; Rockies 22-18, 0.5 lead on San Francisco
