Welcome to Turner Field …

Here is tonight’s lineup vs. Atlanta:

  1. Shane Victorino, CF
  2. Placido Polanco, 3B
  3. Jimmy Rollins, SS
  4. Ryan Howard, 1B
  5. Ben Francisco, RF
  6. Raul Ibanez, LF
  7. Carlos Ruiz, C
  8. Wilson Valdez, 2B
  9. Cliff Lee, P


Valdez went 4 for 4 with three runs scored in yesterday’s 11-0 victory over the Mets. He is the first No. 8 hitter to have four or more hits and score three or more runs for the Phillies since Steve Lake on June 30, 1991, against the Mets. Valdez also had three RBIs yesterday. He is the first No. 8 hitter to have four or more hits, score three or more runs nad have three or more RBIs since Larry Bowa on June 22, 1977 vs. Cincinnati. … The Phillies caught a break when Dennys Reyes failed his physical over the winter. The Phillies pulled back on a contract agreement, and he later signed for $900,000 with the Boston Red Sox. The Red Sox just designated him for assignment.
