Coming off of a 4-7 road trip, the Miami Marlins will look to continue their winning ways at home as they begin a three game series with the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night. Anthony DeSclafani will be on the mound for the Marlins.

Although the Marlins signed Randy Wolf, Anthony DeSclafani earned a second start after pitching well in his major league debut. In six innings against the Dodgers, DeSclafani gave up two runs while walking one and striking out seven.
Miami's starting pitchers struggled on the 11 game West Coast road trip.
A.J. Burnett went five innings in his last outing against the Angels, giving up three runs and walking five while striking out six.
|PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES||MIAMI MARLINS|
|Jimmy Rollins - SS||C. Yelich - LF|
|Carlos Ruiz - C||Derek Dietrich - 2B|
|Chase Utley - 2B||G. Stanton - RF|
|Ryan Howard - 1B||Casey McGehee - 3B|
|Marlon Byrd - RF||Garrett Jones - 1B|
|Cody Asche - 3B||J. Saltalamacchia - C|
|Domonic Brown - LF||Marcell Ozuna - CF|
|Tony Gwynn Jr. - CF||A. Hechavarria - SS|
|A.J. Burnett - RHP||A. DeSclafani - RHP|
Facing Burnett, the Marlins turn to their traditional right-handed pitcher lineup. Derek Dietrich is in the two hole behind Giancarlo Stanton, and Adeiny Hechavarria is batting eighth.
Jarrod Saltalamacchia is back behind the plate, and Stanton returns to the cleanup spot after being given Sunday afternoon off.
-Can the Marlins thrive within the division? Facing a NL East opponent, it is essential the Marlins play well and consistently. Miami was swept when they played the Phillies in Philadelphia.
-How will DeSclafani fare? Miami's latest promoted prospect pitched well in his first start, but will a poor outing slot Wolf into the rotation?
