The Phillies take to the road in this rematch of the 1993 World Series. Hoping to put together some momentum, the Phils look to build on yesterday’s win over the Yankees when Cliff Lee takes the mound.

Lee will take the mound for the first time this Spring and we will have an opportunity to see how his abdominal strain is effecting him.

Some questions heading into the game: Will Hector Luna continue his push for Major League consideration? Will we seem some wheels or defense today from Juan Pierre? Does Domonic Brown’s absence from the line-up signal something greater or is it a routine day off?

Here is your Phillies starting lineup for today as they face off against the Toronto Blue Jays in Game 4 of the Grapefruit League schedule. I guess they really are playing someone other than the Yankees this Spring!

Phillies Lineup:
1. Rollins SS
2. Pierre LF
3. Victorino CF
4. Wigginton 1B
5. Mayberry RF
6. Nix DH
7. Luna 3B
8. Ruiz C
9. Martinez 2B

Phillies Pitchers:
- LHP Cliff Lee
- RHP Kyle Kendrick
- LHP Jeremy Horst
- RHP Michael Schwimer
- RHP J.C. Ramirez
- LHP Raul Valdes
