Game Thread 8/5: Marlins at Phillies

It’s Aaron Nola time.

MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at Philadelphia Phillies Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

You know who Aaron Nola hates facing? Martin Prado. The veteran infielder is 6-for-15 off the Phillies ace lifetime, and 3-for-6 off him in 2018. But other than him, Nola’s typically been able to keep the Fish at bay; which isn’t surprising considering the magnificent performance he put in last week in Boston. Here’s hoping the Phillies offense backs him up with a few more runs than they did in that particular 13-inning loss.
