Gameday: Marlins (31-23) At Phillies (32-25)

It’s a huge day for the Phillies, as they’ll try to take two of three from the first-place Marlins. If they win, they capture first again; if not, it’s 1.5 games back and more work to be done.

Cole Hamels had the opportunity to give the Phils a cushion last night, but pitched very poorly en route to a 7-3 loss. Now it’s up to Jamie Moyer to beat the Fish. He has a 3.05 ERA against the Marlins.

The Marlins counter with phenom Andrew Miller, acquired in the Miguel Cabrera/Dontrelle Willis trade from Detroit. Miller has struggled this season, bu has been effective in three of his last five starts. He’s the kind of young lefty against whom the Phils can sometimes wheeze. The alternate unis will be on display today.

Phillies: Jamie Moyer (5-3) 4.45 ERA
Marlins: Andrew Miller (4-4) 5.53 ERA

Gametime: 1:35 p.m. EST
Weather: 80 degrees, partly cloudy
Television: TBS
Lineup: Rollins, Victorino, Utley, Howard, Burrell, Feliz, Coste, Taguchi, Moyer
