Today's lineup: Carlos Ruiz, Freddy Galvis, Tyler Goeddel return to lineup


A day after the Phillies scored six runs and broke their seven-game losing streak against the Brewers, manager Pete Mackanin has tinkered with his lineup.

All three of the players that were replaced in the lineup knocked in runs during Friday's win. 

Catcher Cameron Rupp and utility man Andres Blanco (playing shortstop on Friday) each blasted a homer. It was the first time the Phillies hit multiple home runs in a game at Citizens Bank Park this season. 

Newcomer Jimmy Paredes recorded his first RBI as a Phillie with a run-scoring single.

This will be the third straight Jeremy Hellickson start that Carlos Ruiz has caught. Ruiz has struggled at the plate, failing to reach base in his last five games. He'll bat eighth. 

The Phils' regular double-play combo of Freddy Galvis and Cesar Hernandez will be intact on Saturday. Galvis will bat second, Hernandez seventh.

Tyler Goeddel returns to the starting lineup for the first time since blasting a two-run homer off Washington Nationals ace Max Scherzer on Wednesday. Goeddel gets the start in right for the just the second time this season. He'll bat sixth behind left fielder Cody Asche, making his third straight start since coming off the DL.

Here is today's lineup:
1. Odubel Herrera, CF
2. Freddy Galvis, SS
3. Maikel Franco, 3B 
4. Tommy Joseph, 1B
5. Cody Asche, LF
6. Tyler Goeddel, RF 
7. Cesar Hernandez, 2B
8. Carlos Ruiz, C
9. Jeremy Hellickson, P
