The Phillies had won seven in a row against the Cincinnati Reds dating back to last year before Tuesday’s 5-4 loss.

The two teams now play the third game of their four-game series at Citizens Bank Park with Vance Worley (6-8, 4.11) against Bronson Arroyo (9-7, 3.96).

Charlie Manuel indicated the other night that he would ease Placido Polanco back into the lineup. Polanco returns at third base after Kevin Frandsen went 3 for 4 with a triple, RBI and a sensational defensive play.

The Phillies hope that Worley can get back on track. In August he is 1-2 with a 5.23 ERA, having walked nine and struck out nine in 20 2/3 innings.
