Game 2 lineups: Polanco, Utley flip

UPDATE (6:32 p.m.): A break for the Phillies. San Francisco just scratched shortstop Juan Uribe, who injured his wrist sliding into second during Game 1. In his place, Edgar Renteria will start.

No surprise here: Charlie Manuel made just one change to his lineup from Game 1 of the National League Championship Series. With lefthander Jonathan Sanchez on the mound, he will break up Chase Utley and Ryan Howard in the middle of the order.

Instead, Placido Polanco will bat third. Utley is moved up to second.

Jimmy Rollins, who was a hot topic after the game as he dropped to 1 for 15 in the postseason, remains in his sixth spot.
