MILWAUKEE — The Phillies are 31-31 and set to face the Brewers' bullpen in a nationally televised game Saturday night. Milwaukee's pitching staff is in shambles, so they will start Tom Gorzelanny.

He is expected to throw two or three innings. A wave of relievers will follow.

Charlie Manuel is countering with another different lineup, one that does not include Ryan Howard.

1. Michael Young 5
2. Kevin Frandsen 3
3. Jimmy Rollins 6
4. Delmon Young 9
5. Domonic Brown 7
6. John Mayberry Jr. 8
7. Erik Kratz 2
8. Cesar Hernandez 4
9. Kyle Kendrick 1

Delmon Young received a $100,000 bonus Saturday for his 40th day on the active roster.
