Ben Revere is back in center field and batting leadoff tonight for the second game of a four-game series against the Giants at Citizens Bank Park.

Revere, who was used as a pinch hitter the past three games, is hitting .301 with seven extra base hits and 11 stolen bases since the start of June.

Grady Sizemore, who has hit .379 in seven games since joining the Phillies, will play left field and bat sixth after starting in center and batting leadoff the past three games. Domonic Brown will not start after going 0 for 5 last night.

The rest of the lineup remains the same.

Roberto Hernandez will take the hill for the Phillies. Hernandez is just 2-6 over his last eight starts but was impressive the last time he pitched, giving up just one run on three hits in eight innings in a 4-1 win over the Brewers on July 9.

He will be opposed by Yusmeiro Petit, who will start for the Giants in place of the injured Matt Cain. Petit is 3-3 with a 3.86 ERA this season but has started just five games.

Here's the full lineup:

1. Ben Revere CF
2. Jimmy Rollins SS
3. Chase Utley 2B
4. Ryan Howard 1B
5. Marlon Byrd RF
6. Grady Sizemore LF
7. Cody Asche 3B
8. Cameron Rupp C
9. Roberto Hernandez P
