Coming off back-to-back wins against the Milwaukee Brewers, including a dominating 8-0 shutout win on Sunday, the Phillies will look to continue to string wins together with the prospects of a three-game streak beginning if the team can manufacture a win on Monday night.
Cincinnati will be entering the series fresh off a series win against the Chicago Cubs, where the Reds managed to score at least five runs in each game. If the team's lineup continues to produce at that rate, the Phillies lineup will need to give starting pitcher Roy Halladay enough offensive support to compete.
Here are the projected starting lineups for Monday night:
1. Jimmy Rollins, Short Stop
2. Juan Pierre, Left Field
3. Chase Utley, Second Base
4. Ryan Howard, First Base
5. John Mayberry, Center Field
6. Domonic Brown, Right Field
7. Placido Polanco, Third Base
8. Erik Kratz, Catcher
9. Roy Halladay, Starting Pitcher
