Tonight's lineup: Brown again batting second
Charlie Manuel so far has been impressed by Domonic Brown, who is 6 for 21 (.286) this season and has struck out just once.
On Sunday against righty Ben Sheets, Manuel hit Brown second for the first time this season, and the outfielder went 1 for 3 in the 6-1 loss.
Brown will again bat second tonight against the Braves, this time against lefty Mike Minor, who hasn't dominated left-handed hitters (see game notes)
. Brown in his major league career is hitting only .204 against lefties.
