Chase Utley has the night off as the Phillies host the Pittsburgh Pirates at 7:05 p.m.

Freddy Galvis returns to the lineup after missing Monday's game and will fill in for Utley at second. It's Galvis' fifth start in the last six games, the last three of which he played in left field. Although he's playing a larger role on the team thanks to his versatility, Galvis has helped make up a Phillies bench that's been the most productive in baseball (see story).

The only other switch in the lineup, John Mayberry has been moved out of the two-hole and into the five-hole. Michael Young will bat third.

Here's how the Phillies will face Pirates pitcher Jeff Locke:

1. Jimmy Rollins, SS
2. Freddy Galvis, 2B
3. Michael Young, 3B
4. Ryan Howard, 1B
5. John Mayberry, RF
6. Dom Brown, LF
7. Ben Revere, CF
8. Erik Kratz, C
9. Cole Hamels, P
