PHILLIES’ MAIKEL FRANCO MAY BE BACK IN LINEUP TONIGHT

By Jack Ryan

Phillies third baseman Maikel Franco (sprained right knee) sat for the second straight game yesterday against Toronto.

Manager Pete Mackanin said he hopes Franco can return tonight.

Franco injured his knee during a rundown in the fourth inning Sunday, landing awkwardly after tagging out Washington’s Chris Heisey. Franco stayed in the game and hit a home run in the ninth.
