Preview: Zach Eflin takes the hill, Phillies look for 2nd straight against the Marlins
The Phillies take the field tonight at 7:05 looking to secure a series win against the Miami Marlins. Zach Eflin (2-4, 3.76 ERA) gets the ball for the Phillies, going up against Trevor Rogers (3-5, 5.58 ERA) of the Marlins.
Last night’s win was the best win of the season. After a dominating start from Sandy Alcantara, the Phillies stayed in the game, chipped away, and pulled away with a 3-2 win, thanks to a walk-off double from Rhys Hoskins. Hoskins’ first career walk-off wouldn’t have happened without a clutch hit from Didi in the 8th, and a beautiful stolen base from Matt Vierling in the 9th.
The team now looks to take the series tonight, something they don’t do often vs Miami. We’ll be seeing some new faces tonight in the Phils infield, as Yairo Munoz is set to make his Phillies major league debut. Mickey Moniak was sent down to AAA today after his struggles continued at the plate.
“Lay of the Day”
Bryce Harper is on fire, Nick Castellanos is 8 of his last 23, and Yairo Munoz will get his first Phillies hit tonight. Book it.
