Michael Young, who had his 14-game hitting streak snapped in Wednesday’s 5-3 loss to Pittsburgh, isn’t in the Phillies starting lineup for this afternoon’s series finale with the Pirates at Citizens Bank Park.

Kevin Frandsen is the starter at third bases and will bat second.

The Phillies (9-13) will look for a series split with the Pirates before traveling to New York and a weekend series with the Mets.

Here is the Phillies lineup.
