The Phillies enter their own house of horrors tonight, opening a six game Florida swing by beginning a four game series in Miami against the Marlins. Since these teams saw each other just last week (thanks, unbalanced schedule), the familiarity with each other should lead to some interesting chess matches between the managers. The Phillies came out last series smoking, using a rare big inning to take game one before the Marlins outhit, outpitched and outplayed the Phillies the final two games. It’ll be a fresh start tonight though, so the Phillies will look to even up their record to .500. Here are your lineups. For the Phillies:
Still no Bryce Harper in the lineup, so you know how this ends, with him on the IL three days later than he should have been, leaving the bench a man short. They’ll face off against this lineup from Miami:
#Marlins Lineup 05/24/21— Daily MLB Lineups (@DailyMLBLineup) May 24, 2021
1. Jazz Chisholm 2B
2. Miguel Rojas SS
3. Jesus Aguilar 1B
4. Adam Duvall RF
5. Brian Anderson 3B
6. Corey Dickerson LF
7. Sandy Leon C
8. Magneuris Sierra CF
9. Trevor Rogers P
Starting Pitcher : Trevor Rogers
Trevor Rogers did an excellent job holding the Phillies offense in check last week, so hopefully the Phillies will have a better scouting report on him this week, leading to some offensive support for Zach Eflin.
Let’s talk about it.
