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.

As Matt Gelb pointed out, the Phillies (18-21) are behind their pace of last season when they were 20-19 after 39 games.

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).  

Here is the Phillies lineup.

1. Jimmy Rollins, SS

2. Kevin Frandsen, 2B

3. Michael Young, 3B

4. Ryan Howard, 1B

5. Delmon Young, RF

6. Domonic Brown, LF

7. Carlos Ruiz, C

8. John Mayberry, Jr., CF

9. Jonathan Pettibone, P
