The Phillies will continue their three-game set with the New York Mets on Saturday afternoon.

Charlie Manuel has re-inserted Humberto Quintero into the Phillies' lineup at catcher. Quintero replaces Erik Kratz, who went 1 for 3 in Friday's 4-0 win over the Mets, and will bat eighth.

Jonathan Pettibone gets the start for the Phillies and will be opposed by Shaun Marcum, who will make his Mets debut.

In Pettibone's last start, the first of his career, the right-hander allowed two runs in 5 1/3 innings with six strikeouts and no walks Monday against the Pirates.

The Phillies will look to have continued success against the Mets at Citi Field. They have won eight of their last 11 meetings in Flushing (see game notes).

Here's the full lineup:

1. Jimmy Rollins, SS
2. Chase Utley, 2B
3. Michael Young, 3B
4. Ryan Howard, 1B
5. Domonic Brown, LF
6. John Mayberry, CF
7. Laynce Nix, RF
8. Humberto Quintero, C
9. Jonathan Pettibone, P
