The Florida Marlins come to Philadelphia for a three game series with the potential to change the complexion of the NL East race -- a sweep by the Phillies puts them 10 games up and all but puts the division away. A sweep by the Marlins, and they're four games back and things are interesting. A split of any kind and it's the status quo.
Red-hot Joe Blanton goes for the Phillies against Ricky Nolasco.
Discuss the game below.
