Phillies centerfielder Ben Revere is back in the leadoff spot for Sunday's series finale against the Cincinnati Reds.

Revere is batting .281 this season but has walked just four times. He came on as a pinch-hitter in the ninth inning and singled, stole a base and scored a run in the Phils' 8-0 win over the Reds on Friday.

The 26-year-old went 0 for 3 with a sacrifice bunt in Saturday's 6-5 loss to Cincinnati.

With Revere at the top of the lineup, Jimmy Rollins will slide down to the two-hole and Carlos Ruiz will bat seventh.

David Buchanan will make his fourth career major-league start for the Phillies. He'll be opposed by Reds right-hander Homer Bailey.

In Buchanan's last two starts, the Phils have not scored a run in his 12 2/3 innings pitched.

Here's the full lineup:

1. Ben Revere, CF
2. Jimmy Rollins, SS
3. Chase Utley, 2B
4. Ryan Howard, 1B
