Gameday: Phillies (19-22) at Marlins (23-22)

Philadelphia Phillies (19-22) at Miami Marlins (23-22)

Starting Pitchers:

PHI: A.J. Burnett (2-3, 3.13)
vs.
MIA: Anthony DeSclafani ( 1-0, 3.00)

Time: 7:10, Marlins Park
TV: CSN
Weather: Partly Cloudy, 79
Media: Twitter and Facebook

A Note for Tonight: Tonight is Anthony DeSclafani’s second Major League start.  The right-hander took over for phenom Jose Fernandez, who will undergo Tommy John surgery.  DeSclafani will make his home debut tonight.  The Phillies should look for a fastball in the low-90s, a changeup, a curve, and a slider from the 24-year-old.

On the other side, A.J. Burnett continues to play through a hernia, but has pitched remarkably well.  He has a 2.79 ERA in his last six starts.  Burnett will look to continue his success against his former team.

Lineup: Rollins SS, Ruiz C, Utley 2b, Howard 1b, Byrd RF, Asche 3b, Brown LF, Gwynn CF, Burnett P.

    Wow! I left the room for a little while, and instead of giving up the lead the Phils took an even bigger one! They ccertainly give new meaning to the term “hot and cold,” don’t they?

    Moyer said the key was to make sure nobody gets on base before Stanton. Nice work, Pappy. Not.

    WHEW!!! OK, he didn’t blow the save. But not for lack of trying.

    Great job offense, pitching and defense (Gwynn Jr’s over the shoulder catch). Three in wins in a row….
