The Phillies have lost four games in a row and haven’t drawn a walk in either game. They hope to end both streaks tonight at Citizens Bank Park against the St. Louis Cardinals.

For the second game in a row, Freddy Galvis is batting second and playing left field. Manager Charlie Manuel talked on Thursday about how he likes having Jimmy Rollins and Galvis, two switch hitters, at the top of the lineup.

For the first time this year, Ryan Howard won’t be in the starting lineup against lefthander Jaime Garcia. Kevin Frandsen will start at first base and bat sixth.

Here is the Phillies lineup.
