Phillips expected to return as Braves face Brewers

MILWAUKEE -- Brandon Phillips is expected to be back atop the Atlanta Braves' batting order Saturday when they take on the Brewers at Miller Park.

Phillips has missed Atlanta's last two games after straining his groin while trying to steal second base in the first inning of the Braves' game against the Mets Wednesday. He sat out Thursday's contest and took batting as well as infield practice Friday at Milwaukee, but manager Brian Snitker decided to give the veteran one extra day.

"He's doing good," Snitker said Friday. "We'll try and stay away from (using him on defense Friday), but hopefully he'll be good to go tomorrow. That's the plan."
