Game 94: Same lineup from Friday

The Phillies are using the same lineup for the first game of Saturday’s day/night doubleheader against the Chicago White Sox as they were going to have on Friday.

That means Chase Utley still gets the first game off. Manager Charlie Manuel had said before Friday’s game was postponed that Utley needed a breather.

The break for Utley came after he committed three errors in Thursday’s 3-1 win over the Washington Nationals. He had played in 20 straight games.

Kevin Frandsen gets the start at second base. The White Sox are starting lefthander John Danks and Manuel had said he likes how Frandsen hits lefties. Frandsen is a career .288 hitter against lefthanded pitching.
