Phillies, Reds lineups

The Phillies have posted their lineup for Game 1 against the Reds:

Jimmy Rollins SS
Shane Victorino CF
Chase Utley 2B
Ryan Howard 1B
Jayson Werth RF
Raul Ibanez LF
Carlos Ruiz C
Wilson Valdez 3B
Roy Halladay P

This lineup is missing the Phillies' top hitter against right-handed pitching, Placido Polanco. And it has nothing to do with his troublesome arm -- general manager Ruben Amaro says Polanco's back tightened up on him on Monday and he wasn't ready to play. They're hopeful he'll be in there for Game 2.

And Cincinnati's lineup is in:

Brandon Phillips 2B
Orlando Cabrera SS
Joey Votto 1B
Scott Rolen 3B
Jonny Gomes LF
Jay Bruce RF
Drew Stubbs CF
Ramon Hernandez C
Edinson Volquez
