Jimmy Rollins is back in the Phillies' starting lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Atlanta Braves at Citizens Bank Park.

With Rollins returning, Freddy Galvis moves from shortstop to left field. Galvis had four hits, including a walk-off home run, in the Phils' 6-5 win over the Braves on Saturday night (see story).

Catcher Carlos Ruiz has been given the afternoon off. Erik Kratz will take over duties behind the plate and bat eighth.

Cole Hamels gets the start for the Phils. The left-hander has a 2.05 ERA in his last six home starts, but doesn't have a win to show for his efforts.

Hamels will be opposed by Braves lefty Paul Maholm. Since returning from the disabled list on Aug. 22, Maholm is 1-0 with a 3.27 ERA in two outings.

Here's the full lineup:

1. Cesar Hernandez, CF
2. Jimmy Rollins, SS
3. Chase Utley, 2B
4. Darin Ruf, RF
5. Kevin Frandsen, 1B
6. Cody Asche, 3B
7. Freddy Galvis, LF
8. Erik Kratz, C
9. Cole Hamels, P
