He was one of two Phillies to reach base on Saturday night (see story), and he's leading off today.

Freddy Galvis had the Phillies' sole hit in their 2-0 loss and reached on a walk. Perhaps that's why Charlie Manuel is giving Galvis the start at shortstop over Jimmy Rollins.

Rollins has just one hit in his last 17 at-bats and no RBIs since April 22.

Galvis on the other hand, has two hits in his last eight at-bats with one RBI and one run scored.

The other notable switch in today's lineup is Chase Utley switching spots in the order with Michael Young.

Young will take Utley's No. 2 spot.

1. Freddy Galvis, SS
2. Michael Young, 3B
3. Chase Utley, 2B
4. Ryan Howard, 1B
5. Delmon Young, RF
6. Dom Brown, LF
7. Carlos Ruiz, C
8. Ben Revere, CF
9. Halladay, P
