Charlie Manuel had 24 hours to think about his lineup during Tuesday's off day. He settled at the same point he left Monday.

The lineup remains identical to Monday's, marking the first time Manuel has duplicated a lineup in the early going. It looks like so:

1. Juan Pierre 7
2. Placido Polanco 5
3. Jimmy Rollins 6
4. Hunter Pence 9
5. Shane Victorino 8
6. John Mayberry Jr. 3
7. Carlos Ruiz 2
8. Freddy Galvis 4
9. Roy Halladay 1
