Miami, FL - After dropping two out of three in Pittsburgh over the weekend, the Philadelphia Phillies continue their 10-game road trip with a stop in Miami for a three-game series, just one week after hosting the Marlins for four games at Citizens Bank Park. The Phillies lost three out of four in that series.
In Sunday's loss to the Pirates, the Phillies saw a 4-2 lead fall by the wayside, losing by a final score of 5-4, thanks to clutch home runs from Matt Joyce and Adam Frazier. On a good note for the Phils, Cesar Hernandez went 3-for-5 at the plate, raising his average to .286 while Odubel Herrera hit his 11th home run of the season.
Tonight, amidst trade rumors, right-hander Jeremy Hellickson is scheduled to start for Philadelphia. He'll be opposed by former Phillies prospect Jarred Cosart. First pitch is set for 7:10 p.m.
The Phillies and Marlins have split 10 games played against each other thus far in 2016.
