Owings will face seven lefties in a row

Righties are hitting .233 with 16 homers off Micah Owings.

Lefties are hitting .274 with 23 home runs.

So maybe it shouldn't come as a surprise that Charlie Manuel has stacked his lineup with southpaws today:

  1. SS Jimmy Rollins (S)
  2. 2B Chase Utley (L)
  3. LF Raul Ibanez (L)
  4. 1B Ryan Howard (L)
  5. RF Matt Stairs (L)
  6. CF Shane Victorino (S)
  7. 3B Greg Dobbs (L)
  8. C Carlos Ruiz (R)
  9. RHP Joe Blanton (RHP)
