Dodgers Vs. Phillies Starting Lineups: Bobby Abreu Receives IV, Bats Leadoff

Not only are the Los Angeles Dodgers trying to snap their three-game losing streak with 25-year old Stephen Fife making his major league debut, but they will have to face the Philadelphia Phillies and Roy Halladay. Philadelphia has won three straight games.

Halladay was activated from the disabled list on Tuesday, and to make room the Phillies outrighted relief pitcher Brian Sanches to Triple A Lehigh Valley. Halladay last pitched for Philadelphia on May 27.

Bobby Abreu received IV fluids before Tuesday's game, as manager Don Mattingly said the outfielder was "feeling down," but not down enough to be held out of the lineup. Abreu is playing left field and batting leadoff Tuesday night. Here are the starting lineups for the second game of the three-game series:

Phillies (40-51)

Rollins SS
Victorino CF
Utley 2B
Howard 1B
Ruiz C
Pence RF
Pierre LF
Polanco 3B
Halladay P

Dodgers (48-43)

Abreu LF
Ellis 2B
Kemp CF
Ethier RF
Kennedy 3B
Loney 1B
Cruz SS
