SERIES PREVIEW

Phillies vs Marlins

Citizens Bank Park

7:05PM EDT on CSN

Aaron Nola (5-8) 4.69 ERA

PHILLIES: Nola rejoins the rotation after his spot was skipped before the All-Star break. He had struggled in his previous five starts, posting a 13.50 ERA. The Phillies hope the time off will clear his mind.

Jose Fernandez (11-4) 2.52 ERA

MARLINS: The All-Star makes his first start of the second half after finishing the first on a roll. In his final 11 starts before the break, Fernandez went 8-2 (1.71 ERA) with 107 strikeouts, 15 walks and a 0.87 WHIP in 73 2/3 innings.
