WASHINGTON -- For the third straight game Domonic Brown isn’t in the Phillies lineup for tonight's game against the Washington Nationals at Nationals Park. Grady Sizemore continues to play well and centerfielder Ben Revere has gotten hot recently. And since Marlon Byrd wasn’t traded, he is a fixture in right field.

Brown is hitting .268 with a .715 OPS this month. It’s his highest monthly total this season for both categories.

Sizemore is batting .328 and Revere is hitting .306.

Here is the Phillies lineup as Roberto Hernandez (5-8, 4.14) faces Doug Fister (10-2 2.69). 

The Phillies are coming off Thursday’s 10-4 win over the Nationals, where the home team was lethargic.
