LOS ANGELES — The Phillies turn to Vance Worley in search of their best 10-game road trip in franchise history. Never before have they gone 9-1 in a 10-game trip.

Worley rebounded from his shakiest start since his recall with seven dominant innings against San Francisco last time out. He's never faced the Dodgers and that should provide an advantage because teams have said the biggest challenge Worley presents is his deception.

Worley is paired with Brian Schneider yet again. In today's Inquirer, we detailed Schneider's success with Worley. Also, the Phillies have 13-game winning streak when Schneider starts. Not bad for a backup catcher.

Charlie Manuel's lineup against Dodgers righthander Chad Billingsley:

1. Jimmy Rollins 6
2. Shane Victorino 8
3. Chase Utley 4
4. Ryan Howard 3
5. Hunter Pence 9
6. Raul Ibanez 7
7. Brian Schneider 2
8. Michael Martinez 5
9. Vance Worley 1
