The Phillies look for some revenge in the second game of their three-game series against New York.

MLB: New York Mets at Philadelphia Phillies Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

The Phillies are looking to bounce back from a crushing, 7-6, 11-inning loss to the Mets at Citizens Bank Park. The struggling Nick Pivetta gets the start for the Phils against Steven Matz of the Mets. Here are the lineups the two teams are throwing out there tonight.

Rhys Hoskins gets the night off, thanks to a swollen ankle suffered during the back end of an ill-fated double steal in the first inning last night. Maikel Franco will play first, Scott Kingery gets the start at third and Odubel Herrera sits against the left-handed Matz. Aaron Altherr will start in center instead.
