One constant lately in Ryne Sandberg's ever-changing lineups has been Roger Bernadina in the leadoff spot. Bernadina plays center field and bats first on Wednesday for the fifth straight game. He's gone 4 for 20 with two doubles and a homer in the leadoff role with the Phillies.

With a sore right Achilles still sidelining Domonic Brown, Pete Orr makes his 2013 debut in left field. Orr hit .253/.296/.320 with no homers in 161 plate appearances with the Phils in 2011 and 2012.

Cody Asche returns to the six-hole after sitting vs. lefty Jon Niese on Tuesday. Carlos Ruiz takes over for Erik Kratz behind the plate and in the cleanup spot.

Darin Ruf isn't in the starting lineup for the first time since July 21, the third game after the All-Star break.

1) Roger Bernadina, CF
2) Jimmy Rollins, SS
3) Chase Utley, 2B (4 for 26 last eight games with eight walks)
4) Carlos Ruiz, C (hitting .441 since Aug. 18)
5) Michael Young, 1B
6) Cody Asche, 3B
7) John Mayberry, RF 
8) Pete Orr, LF
9) Cole Hamels, P
