NLCS Game 6: Phillies lineup versus Jonathan Sanchez

NLCS Phillies Giants Baseball

Here’s the Phillies’ lineup for Game 6 of the NLCS against the Giants and left-hander Jonathan Sanchez.

1. Jimmy Rollins, SS

2. Placido Polanco, 3B

3. Chase Utley, 2B

4. Ryan Howard, 1B

5. Jayson Werth, RF

6. Shane Victorino, CF

7. Raul Ibanez, LF

8. Carlos Ruiz, C

9. Roy Oswalt, P

The big change here is that Jimmy Rollins is back in the leadoff spot for the first time since Game 1 of the NLDS against the Reds. Rollins stole two bases in Thursday’s win in Game 5, so it looks like his hamstring is finally feeling close to 100 percent. Shane Victorino gets bumped down to sixth in the order.

Charlie Manuel also sticks with Raul Ibanez against the lefty Sanchez, despite using Ben Francisco against southpaw Madison Bumgarner in left field in Game 4. Ibanez had his first two hits of the series in Game 5 and is batting just .185 (5-for-27) during the postseason.

    Well, Jimmy, I hope Cholly had the training staff–or IT staff, for that matter–install a pop-up-blocking chip or program or something. We’ll bring it to give them all we have–if you do, too (’cause we only have so much, and we don’t want to have to split it between the two teams:) ).

    Let’s go Phightins!!!!! Chuck those Dwarves all the way back to Fisherman’s Wharf…or that prison that Sean Connery blew up…or…that misnamed bridge…or…um…I can’t think of anything else that they have!!!!!!!
