The Phillies were outscored by Cleveland, 20-2 when they lost two road games two weeks ago and now they get a chance to host the Indians for another quick two-game series.

Kevin Frandsen gets the start at second base for Chase Utley, while John Mayberry, Jr., is in center for Ben Revere.

Jonathan Pettibone (2-0, 3.63) opposes Scott Kazmir (2-1, 4.87).
