Well, Charlie Manuel's original plan was to sit Jayson Werth for a second straight game and play Domonic Brown in back-to-back games for the first time since Aug. 10-11.

But about two hours prior to first pitch, Brown was scratched with tightness in his right quad. He will see a doctor later Tuesday night for further evaluation.

Brown said he has felt the tightness for about a week. Sliding into home plate in the second inning of Monday's second game made things worse.

"There was a little more pain today," Brown said. "I iced it down and went out there for early hitting and it didn't feel too good. So we didn't want to make it any worse."

Werth will slide into the lineup where Brown was scheduled to hit -- seventh. It's the first time he is hitting that low in the order since Aug. 24, 2008, when he batted seventh.

Werth is 1 for 17 lifetime against Marlins starter Chris Volstad with seven strikeouts.
