Rollins takes breather after struggling on road
PHOENIX -- It has been a rough road trip for Jimmy Rollins, so he got a breather Wednesday at Chase Field.

Phillies manager Charlie Manuel started Freddy Galvis at shortstop and Pete Orr at second base against D-backs right-hander Trevor Cahill. It was the first time Rollins was not in the starting lineup this season, but Rollins needed it. He is hitting just .091 (3-for-33) in the first nine games of this 10-game road trip through San Francisco, San Diego and Arizona.

"This will give him a day off today and tomorrow," Manuel said. "I needed to give him a blow."
