Phillies/Marlins Game 2

The Marlins will try to reduce the Phillies' lead in the NL East to 2 games with a win tonight.

Here are tonight's starting lineups:

PHI-Rollins, SS; Victorino, CF; Utley, 2B; Howard, 1B; Burrell, LF; Werth, RF; Feliz, 3B; Ruiz, C; Hamels, P.

FLA-Ramirez, SS; Hermida, RF; Cantu, 1B; Helms, 3B; Uggla, 2B; Gonzalez, LF; Ross, CF; Treanor, C; A. Miller, P.


Cantoo First Jorge Cantu will need this kind of glove when he makes his first career start at first base tonight. Cantu, who has a 1st base, 3rd base and 2nd base glove in his locker, has played 1st base in the late innings of 5 games this season. He played 1st base in 21 games for the Rays and Reds last season.

Manager Fredi Gonzalez said he wanted to get Wes Helms, who is 4 for 9 against Cole Hamels, into the lineup. Helms will start at 3rd base.


Josh Willingham went 0 for 4 with a walk and two strikeouts in an extended spring training game in Will Mud Jupiter earlier today. Gonzalez said Willingham will travel to play for the Marlins Double A team, the Carolina Mudcats for the next 7 to 9 games. Willingham will play left field and DH in Carolina.

Willingham is expected back before the All-Star break on July 14.
