The Philadelphia Phillies will try to wrap up their three-game series against the Miami Marlins with a clean sweep at Citizens Bank Park. The Phillies won the first two games, 3-2 on Tuesday and 4-3 on Wednesday. The Phillies have won 10 of the 15 head-to-head games so far this season. Meanwhile, the Marlins have lost nine games in a row, with three of the last four losses coming by one run.
Miami is 30.5 games out of first in the NL East and has a -94 run differential this season as they have failed to score more than three runs in their last 10 games, and they’ve actually scored two or less in nine of those 10. It’s certainly been another rough season for Marlins fans. Fortunately for them, they’ll be sending out one of the best pitchers in the major leagues to try and turn things around.
Today Sandy Alcantara will head to the mound, who is making his 28th start of the season. He’s been one of the best pitchers in baseball this season, but he has been rocked in two of his last three starts and has given up at least four runs in four of his last seven starts. Alcantara holds a 12-7 record with a 2.36 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP over 190.2 innings pitched while striking out 170.
On the other side, the Phillies have much more to play for than the Marlins. Entering today, Philly is currently tied with the Padres as the final teams to get into the MLB Wild Card. The Brewers are four games behind. To try and secure a Wild Card spot, Kyle Gibson will make the start for the Phillies. He has undoubtedly been brilliant at times but also terrible at times. At home, Gibson is 7-3 with a 3.71 ERA, which should give him enough confidence to perform well today.
