Domonic Brown will be back in the Phillies' lineup when they wrap up their four-game set with the Mets at 1:10.

Brown has been out of action since he was removed from last Saturday's 18-inning marathon with a sore right Achilles.

His return juggles the lineup that Ryne Sandberg marched out Wednesday.

Roger Bernadina, who led off last night, has the day off. John Mayberry shifts to center and will stay in the seven-hole.

Michael Young, at first base and batting fifth last night, moves to third and bumps up to lead off. Cody Asche sits and Kevin Frandsen plays first.

Jimmy Rollins also has the day off. John McDonald starts at short.

Here's how the Phillies face Mets starter Carlos Torres in order:

1. Michael Young, 3B
2. Kevin Frandsen, 1B
3. Chase Utley, 2B
4. Dom Brown, LF
5. Carlos Ruiz, C
6. Darin Ruf, RF
7. John Mayberry, CF
8. John McDonald, SS
9. Ethan Matin, P
