Brown starts in RF, bats 6th

A new era in Phillies history begins tonight as highly touted prospect Domonic Brown is penciled in the starting lineup.

Brown will play right field tonight and bat sixth. His first Major League at bat will, most likely, come against Edwin Jackson. Jackson owns one of MLB's five no hitters this season, but overall he's 6-9 with a 5.01 ERA.

Jimmy Rollins remains out of the lineup as Wilson Valdez will once again fill in at short stop. Placido Polanco fills the void left by the absence of Rollins and Shane Victorino in the lead-off hole with Greg Dobbs manning third base and batting second.

The Phillies are searching for their seventh straight victory.
