Kevin Frandsen went 3-for-4 with a key triple and a clutch defensive play, but he'll be on the bench for tonight's game against the Reds as Placido Polanco returns to the starting lineup. Perhaps the Phillies are still hoping to deal away Polanco, who has an option on his contract for next season that is all but sure to be declined.

Frandsen is 6-for-10 with an RBI and two runs in his last two starts. 

The only other lineup change is Brian Schneider catching Vance Worley.

The lineup:

1. Jimmy Rollins SS

2. Juan Pierre LF

3. Chase Utley 2B

4. Ryan Howard 1B

5. John Mayberry Jr. LF

6. Domonic Brown RF

7. Placido Polanco 3B

8. Brian Schneider C

9. Vance Worley RHP
