Today's lineup: Jimmy Paredes back in right; Cameron Rupp quietly raking


Pete Mackanin is still looking for answers in his lineup.

After a three-run second inning, the Phillies failed to score another run in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Brewers.

In that inning, rookie first baseman Tommy Joseph continued to impress as the Phillies' cleanup hitter by crushing a solo homer to centerfield. He looks to be a solution in that spot for Mackanin. When batting cleanup, Joseph is 9 for 31 (.290) with two homers and four RBIs. 

Back in the lineup is newcomer Jimmy Paredes who will be in right field and bat behind Joseph in the five spot. Paredes is 2 of 9 with an RBI and six strikeouts since coming to the Phillies.

Cameron Rupp returns behind the plate. Rupp is quietly having a very nice season. In his last 10 games, Rupp is hitting .371 (13 for 35) with two homers. On the season he's hitting .279 with three home runs and 11 RBIs. He'll bat sixth on Sunday.

Here is today's lineup:
1. Odubel Herrera, CF
2. Freddy Galvis, SS
3. Maikel Franco, 3B 
4. Tommy Joseph, 1B
5. Jimmy Paredes, RF
6. Cameron Rupp, C
7. Cody Asche, LF 
8. Cesar Hernandez, 2B
9. Aaron Nola, P
