Two NL East teams go at it here on Friday as the Philadelphia Phillies and Miami Marlins get set for battle.
Both teams sit middle of the pack in the NL East, 3.5 games out of first place Washington.
The Phillies have shown signs of brightness this season and they’ll need a lot more to compete with the Nationals and Mets in the division.
However, after sweeping Cleveland over the weekend, the Phillies dropped 3 of 4 to the Cardinals to fall 3.5 games back in the division. Philadelphia has used their pitching as the backbone to this team, something that really failed them against the Cardinals this week.
The Phillies will send out Vince Velasquez, who has been quite the story this season. Velasquez is 4-1 on the season with a 1.44 ERA on the year. He turned in a solid effort against the Tribe on Sunday to earn the win and even contributed to the offense as he got the walk to spark a 2 run rally, which was all he needed.
The Marlins keep on rolling swept away the Diamondbacks this past week as they continue to stay hot and get themselves back in to the race here early.
Miami has relied heavily on Giancarlo Stanton, who has hit 6 homeruns over the past 11 games for Miami. Stanton hit a mammoth shot in Game 2 of the series on a ball that traveled 436 feet. He’s been the ignitor to this offense that has averaged over 4 runs per game.
The Marlins will send out LH Wei-Yen Chen, who is 2-1 on the season. After getting rocked on Opening Day against the Tigers, Chen has turned in a 2-1 record with a 3.38 ERA. He’s a typical ground ball pitcher with nothing overpowering, so the Marlins can expect a lot of balls to be in play when he pitches.
