The Phillies are 26-54 in their last 80 games vs. a right-handed starter and 1-11 in their last 12 during game 1 of a series. The Marlins are 4-1 in their last 5 games following an off day and 3-7 in Koehlers last 10 starts. The Phillies are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Miami and 7-1 in the last 8 meetings overall.
The Phillies have been unbackable for quite some time now and simply aren't putting runs on the board at all. Meanwhile, the Marlins are building some positive ball heading into next season. Give me the fish at home.
