Carlos Ruiz is out tonight with a bruised hand and is uncertain for Sunday's season finale. Filling in for the injured Ruiz is Cameron Rupp, who is back behind the plate for just the third start of his career. He went 1 for 4 at the plate in each of his previous starts.

Rupp did see action Thursday in the Phillies' 7-1 loss. He went 0 for 1 in the game in a pinch-hit at-bat.

Also returning to the lineup in right field is John Mayberry. He had the night off on Friday in favor of Roger Bernadina, who went 0 for 3. Mayberry is batting .228 on the season and has driven in just one run since Aug. 28.

Here's the full lineup:

1. Cesar Hernandez, CF
2. Jimmy Rollins, SS
3. Chase Utley, 2B
4. Darin Ruf, 1B
5. Dom Brown, LF
6. Cameron Rupp, C
7. Cody Asche, 3B
8. John Mayberry, RF
9. Ethan Martin, P
