Chase Utley is back in the line-up, although he is hitting second instead of his usual spot at third. Charlie Manuel is going for balance. The Reds have tough lefty Bill Bray in the bullpen. Hard-throwing Cuban Aroldis Chapman is on the disabled list. He has been replaced by Matt Maloney, who was dealt to the Reds by the Phillies in the Kyle Lohse trade.
