Apparently Jimmy Rollins' two stolen bases in Game 5 were enough proof for Charlie Manuel that his leadoff hitter is healthy enough to bat at the top of the lineup.

Rollins returns to the leadoff spot for the second time this postseason in Game 6. Rollins batted leadoff in five games at the end of the regular season and was 4 for 18.

But against the lefthander Jonathan Sanchez, Rollins will be batting from his stronger side (right) and Manuel must like the matchup.

Here's the full lineup:

1. Jimmy Rollins SS
2. Placido Polanco 3B
3. Chase Utley 2B
4. Ryan Howard 1B
5. Jayson Werth RF
6. Shane Victorino CF
7. Raul Ibanez LF
8. Carlos Ruiz C
9. Roy Oswalt P

It's the first time the Phillies are using that lineup this season.

The Giants' lineup is as follows:

1. Andres Torres CF
2. Freddy Sanchez 2B
3. Aubrey Huff 1B
4. Buster Posey C
5. Pat Burrell LF
6. Cody Ross RF
7. Juan Uribe 3B
8. Edgar Renteria SS
9. Jonathan Sanchez P
