Phillies manager Charlie Manuel is shaking up his lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Ben Revere is back in the leadoff spot, pushing Jimmy Rollins to the two-hole. Revere hasn't hit first for the Phils since April 17 against the Reds.

Revere had one of his best games of the season on Saturday. The centerfielder went 2 for 3 with a walk, scored two runs, stole a base and increased is on-base percentage to .293.

Third baseman Michael Young and catcher Carlos Ruiz have been given the afternoon off. Freddy Galvis will take Young's spot on the hot corner, while Erik Kratz will replace Ruiz behind the plate.

Kyle Kendrick (4-1, 2.45 ERA) will take the hill for the Phils and will be opposed by right-hander Brandon McCarthy (0-3, 6.75 ERA).

Kendrick has gone 11-4 with a 2.43 ERA and .217 opponents' batting average dating back to Aug. 14, 2012.

Here's the full lineup:

1. Ben Revere, CF
2. Jimmy Rollins, SS
3. Chase Utley, 2B
4. Ryan Howard, 1B
5. Delmon Young, RF
6. Domonic Brown, LF
7. Freddy Galvis, 3B
