Manuel sticks with same Phillies lineup
ATLANTA -- Phillies manager Charlie Manuel used the same lineup Monday at Turner Field that he used Sunday at Citi Field to snap the team's eight-game losing streak.

It was just the sixth time the Phillies have used their everyday lineup since Hunter Pence joined the team July 30.

First baseman Ryan Howard, who left Sunday's game because of soreness in his left heel, batted fourth. Howard said he will try to play this week in Atlanta after missing nearly a week last week after receiving a cortisone injection into the bursa sac in his left ankle.
