SERIES PREVIEW

Marlins Park

7:10PM on TCN

Vince Velasquez (4-1) 1.44 ERA

PHILLIES: Velasquez pitched six scoreless innings Sunday against Cleveland, becoming the only pitcher to have three starts with six or more innings, no runs and three or fewer hits allowed. Opponents have hit just .164 against him. So basically, Vince is your lord and savior and the poor, poor Marlins are getting blanked tonight.

Wei-Yin Chen (2-1) 4.26 ERA

MARLINS: Since giving up five runs in five innings on Opening Day, Chen is 2-1 with a 3.38 ERA. He's been a strike-throwing machine, and his ground-ball percentage is 47.3 percent. He has allowed four homers, which ironically is the same amount of homers he will give up tonight.
