A Note for Today:
Prior to the game, relief pitcher Justin De Fratus was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley, and Luis Garcia was called up. Garcia could just be up for today, as Mike Adams is expected to be activated off the DL tomorrow. De Fratus had a 7.20 ERA in five innings this year. Ben Revere will rest for a third straight game, as Tony Gwynn Jr gets the start in center. Carloz Ruiz will get a day off as well. Chase Utley, after adding two doubles last night, is currently batting .472 and getting on base at a .537 clip.
