NEW YORK — Carlos Ruiz remains out of the Phillies' lineup for the second straight game with tightness in his right hamstring.

Ruiz's absence is not surprising, since manager Charlie Manuel indicated after Monday’s 8-4 win over the New York Mets that Brian Schneider would likely start in today’s game, the second of the Phillies' three-game series at Citi Field against the Mets.

Schneider is catching, and Ty Wigginton is in the cleanup spot after his career-high 6 RBI in Monday's game.
