Polanco out of lineup, Victorino in

Shane Victorino's absence from last night's win over the Brewers apparently was not serious. The center fielder is back in the lineup today, batting second behind Jimmy Rollins. Victorino was hit on the elbow with a pitch in the first inning, apparently on the funny bone. That forced him from the game after the inning.

Victorino was hit on the elbow with a pitch in the first inning, apparently on the funny bone. That forced him from the game after the inning. 

Not in the lineup is Placido Polanco, who will miss a second straight game with what Charlie Manuel has described as lower back tightness. Ty Wigginton once again gets the start at third base.

  1. Rollins SS
