After appealing to the MLB powers that be, Shane Victorino's suspension for his involvement in the San Fran brawl has been reduced to two games and it will begin tonight.
Also out of the lineup for this evening's game against the Diamondbacks are Carlos Ruiz and Ryan Howard. Chooch is battling a testicle contusion -- ouch! -- while the Big Piece has some hand soreness which he believes to be nothing too serious.
With Placido Polanco already on the DL, you'll see the likes of Ross Gload, Wilson Valdez, and likely John Mayberry Jr. this evening.
Tonight's lineup will be: Jimmy Rollins, John Mayberry Jr. (CF), Chase Utley, Hunter Pence, Raul Ibanez, Ross Gload (1B), Brian Schneider, Wilson Valdez, and Vance Worley.
