The Phillies continue their seven-game road trip on Tuesday against the Giants at AT&T Park (see game notes).

Kyle Kendrick takes the mound to face fellow righty Tim Lincecum, which prompted Phillies manager Charlie Manuel to put more left-handed hitters into the lineup.

Laynce Nix (right field) and Ben Revere (center field) will start in the outfield, hitting seventh and eight, respectively. Carlos Ruiz will also be back behind the plate after sitting out Monday's series opener.

Here's the Phillies' full lineup to face the Giants:

1. Jimmy Rollins, SS
2. Chase Utley, 2B
3. Michael Young, 3B
4. Ryan Howard, 1B
5. Carlos Ruiz, C
