Charlie Manuel wasn't happy that his team scored just four runs last night in a 4-0 victory over the A's, so he continues to tinker with the Phillies lineup.

Check out today's lineup against A's righthander Rich Harden:

1. Jimmy Rollins, SS
2. Chase Utley, 2B
3. Pat Burrell, LF
4. Ryan Howard, 1B
5. Greg Dobbs, 3B
6. Shane Victorino, CF
7. Jayson Werth, RF
8. Geoff Jenkins, DH
9. Carlos Ruiz, C
