Phillies stack lineup with lefties vs. Cain
PHILADELPHIA -- Mike Fontenot started at third base in place of Placido Polanco on Saturday, likely because Fontenot gave the Phillies another left-handed bat in the lineup against Giants right-hander Matt Cain.

Polanco had just two hits in his last 18 at-bats entering Saturday and is 0-for-6 for his career against Cain, who started for the National League in this year's All-Star Game. Fontenot came into the game 2-for-8 with a double and an RBI against Cain.

With Fontenot starting, seven of the nine players in the Phillies' lineup were either left-handed or switch-hitters.
