No changes for the Phillies, who stick with the same lineup they used in Game 4.

Tony La Russa, however, did not stick with the same group, benching Jon Jay while shifting Skip Schumaker to center field and inserting Nick Punto into the lineup at second base. As promised Matt Holliday will again play through his hand injury, with Allen Craig on the bench.
