NEW YORK -- For the third straight game, catcher Carlos Ruiz is not in the Phillies starting lineup due to a right hamstring strain.

The Phillies have said on Tuesday that Ruiz doesn’t appear to be a DL candidate. The team has an off-day on Thursday before resuming Friday at Citizens Bank Park against the Miami Marlins.

In addition, Freddy Galvis isn’t in the lineup. Mike Fontenot will start at second base. RHP Dillon Gee (4-3, 4.92) goes for the Mets.

The big question is could this be the night Cliff Lee (0-2, 2.82) gets his first win?

Here is the Phillies lineup.

1.Jimmy Rollins, SS

2. Juan Pierre, LF

3. Hunter Pence, RF

4. Ty Wigginton, 1B

5. Shane Victorino, CF

6. Placido Polanco, 3B

7. Mike Fontenot, 2B

8. Brian Schneider, C

9. Cliff Lee, P
