Schneider to catch Worley again, Phillies lineup

With lefthander Jonathon Neise on the mound for the Mets, the Phillies will shift to virtually the same lineup that they used the other night against the Marlins' Mark Buehrle.

With lefthander Jonathon Neise on the mound for the Mets, the Phillies will shift to virtually the same lineup that they used the other night against the Marlins' Mark Buehrle.

The only change is that catcher Carlos Ruiz has the day off, so Brian Schneider gets the start. Schneider will hit eighth, bumping Feddy Galvis up a spot.

Schneider caught 18 of Vance Worley's 25 starts last season and has started both of Worley's outings this year. He has now caught every Worley start since last July.

Manager Charlie Manuel, however, had objected to the idea that Schneider is Worley's personal catcher. He says Schneider is playing because it is a day game after a night game.
