Today's lineup: Utley starts again
Chase Utley will start the Phillies' afternoon game after going 0 for 4 in the Phillies' 11-1 loss to the Mets on Tuesday night.
Still, Utley starting a day game following a night game is seemingly a good sign. Utley did have a day off on Sunday in the series finale against the Marlins.
Utley is 5 for 17 since returning to the club.
With Ty Wigginton out of the lineup, John Mayberry Jr. moves from left field to first and Juan Pierre is back in for Wednesday. Pierre gets to bat second, which drops Polanco in the lineup.
It's hard to believe, but Cliff Lee is still searching for his first win.
In six career starts against the Mets, Lee is 2-1 with a 2.25 ERA and 1.05 WHIP, with 37 strikouts to eight walks. At Citi Field, he is 1-0 with three runs allowed in 13 innings (see game notes)
