The Phillies and Marlins meet Friday as the final regular season games bring high stakes. Philadelphia is 7-5 this season head to head vs. Miami.
Philadelphia is hot again, winning five straight as of Thursday afternoon. The Phillies downed Washington 12-6 Wednesday and trail Atlanta by two games for the NL East lead. A quick look shows Philadelphia 2.5 games behind Cincinnati for the final NL wildcard.
Obviously, urgency has crept into the team clubhouse as the Phils continue stellar play vs. division rivals. Although, with each outing now crucial to their postseason hopes, the Phillies must assert themselves this weeked against Miami.
Kyle Gibson gets the opening nod today vs. a subdued Marlins lineup. While Gibson, who was traded to Philly from Texas, stands 10-5 overall, his 3-3 road record is a noted drop off. Nonetheless, Gibson has plied excellent trade lately while helping Philadelphia earn wins in his last two starts.
In his most recent appearance, Gibson tossed six shutout innings vs. Arizona.
Back in their familiar role of hard-luck spoiler, following a surprise 2020 wild card run, Miami has won four of six. Offensive success is the common theme for Miami’s recent triumphs. Whenever the Marlins generate scores, given their strong pitching numbers, the fish are much better than their record.
Unfortunately, South Beach offense is at a premium. Miami’s 525 runs rank fourth-worst among all MLB clubs. That stated, it isn’t likely the Marlins will fare well against Gibson’s 2.94 ERA.
The Marlins dropped their latest contest 3-1 vs. NYM.
Young lefty Jesus Luzardo seeks consistency while opening Friday for Miami. The 23-year-old flashes productive glimpses, but as evidenced by his last two starts there are holes to his craft. In his latest outing, Luzardo blanked Cincinnati through six innings. However, one game prior saw Washington rock the third round pick for five runs through four frames.
Luzardo stands 5-7 with a 7.19 ERA this year while giving up three runs in five innings against Phillly.

Philadelphia remains up against it, and really must beat teams like Miami to clinch its first postseason berth since 2011. If the Phils can’t get over the hump, their competitive core will likely be broken up. Knowing that, and with Gibson starting, expect a Philadelphia road win vs. pesky Miami.
