PITTSBURGH - Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips was back in the lineup on Sunday after missing Saturday's game at Pittsburgh due to a family matter. It was the first game Phillips has missed this season.
The Reds could use his offense after struggling in a 3-1 loss to the Pirates on Saturday night. The Reds went 0-for-12 with runners in scoring position.
