In the first of two exhibition game in at Citizens Bank Park against the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Phillies are going with their main starting lineup.
Here is tonight’s lineup: Juan Pierre, LF; Placido Polanco, 3B; Jimmy Rollins, SS; Hunter Pence, RF; Shane Victorino, CF; Ty Wigginton, 1B; Carlos Ruis, C; Freddy Galvis, 2B; Joe Blanton, P.
Despite the chilly conditions, the Phillies all said they were glad to be back to Philadelphia. (Did you expect any other reaction?).
Charlie Manuel talked before the game about how he likes Rollins in the third spot and also said that John Mayberry Jr. would get plenty of playing time.
