After a day off on Tuesday the Miami Marlins will continue their three-game road series against the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday looking for a repeat of Monday's result. Get your MLB odds at Bovada Sportsbook.
Miami rolled over Cole Hamels and the Phillies 6-2 in the opener of the series on Monday, knocking around the lefthander for four runs (three earned) on eight hits in his 5 1-3 innings of work. Hamels did, however, manage to strike out nine batters in that contest.
Omar Infante blasted a pair of home runs for the Marlins in Monday's win, with Austin Kearns adding a solo shot while filling in for Giancarlo Stanton – who missed the game with a sore knee. Jose Reyes had two hits to bring his season average up to .318.
Anibal Sanchez earned the win for the Marlins on Monday, lasting 6 1-3 innings while giving up just two runs on six hits and fanning four batters. Freddy Galvis drove in both runs for the Phillies in the losing cause.
The Marlins will really have their work cut out for them on Wednesday, though, as they'll be up against Phillies ace Roy Halladay – who is coming off a dominant win in his first start of the season. The righthander faced the Pirates in his first outing, allowing just two hits and no walks while fanning five in eight shutout innings.
Josh Johnson is the probable pitcher for Miami on Wednesday, and he was tagged with a loss by the Cardinals in his first start of the season after allowing three runs on 10 hits in six innings of work. Johnson struck out four and walked two in that contest.
Miami will need better outings from Johnson this season if they're going to be able to pay off on the MLB futures odds at Bovada Sportsbook; at last update they were at 22/1 to win the 2012 World Series this season, and at 10/1 to claim the NL Pennant. The Phillies were the 6/1 favorites to win the World Series to go along with their 9/4 NL Pennant odds.
First pitch for Wednesday's game is set for 7:05pm ET in Philadelphia, and the teams will close out the series at the same time on Thursday night; Miami's Mark Buehrle (0-1, 3.00 ERA) is set to take on Philly's Joe Blanton (0-1, 13.50 ERA) in the series finale.
