Philadelphia Phillies superstar Bryce Harper is back in the starting lineup for tonight’s game against the Cincinnati Reds.

Harper is batting third and playing first base. He missed Sunday’s game with what Phillies Manager Rob Thomson called a scheduled day off.

Harper crashed into the photographer’s well chasing a foul ball during Saturday’s game. He remained in the game until being lifted late because the game was out of hand, as the Braves won 12-4.

The two-time NL MVP, Harper, is hitless in six at-bats this season and has walked twice with three strikeouts.

The Phillies host the Reds tonight. First pitch is scheduled for 6:40 p.m. ET. The Phillies send Cristopher Sanchez to the mound to face Andrew Abbott.
