Victorino returns to No. 2 spot for Phils

MILWAUKEE -- The lineup juggling act continued for the Phillies on Sunday for Game 4 of the best-of-five National League Division Series.

Trying to jump-start a sagging postseason offense, manager Charlie Manuel put speed at the top with Jimmy Rollins and Shane Victorino, a combination that worked well in Game 2 against CC Sabathia.

After winning, 5-2, in Game 2, Rollins -- who led off Game 4 with a homer off Brewers starter Jeff Suppan -- joked that it was the "winning lineup."

Jayson Werth, who batted second in Game 3, dropped to sixth.

Despite leading the series 2-1, Manuel is concerned about the team's struggling sluggers. Chase Utley, Pat Burrell and Ryan Howard are 4-for-28 (.142) in the first three games.

"We've got to hit," Manuel said. "We've got to score runs. We're supposed to hit, and when we don't, I'm concerned. That's what the playoffs are about; you don't have time to go into slumps. You've got to be playing good. In order for us to go to the World Series, we've got to hit."
