The Marlins start a four game set with the Phillies tonight. The Fish are even with Phillies in the Wild Card standings at three back. In the remaining 23 games, 10 will be against Philadelphia.
The starting pitcher for the Marlins will be Josh Johnson. The Phillies will trot out Jon Lieber.
Game time is 7:05 p.m.
Johnson wasn't quite as sharp in his last outing, but he still pitched decently. In his last two home starts he has made it at least seven innings.
Lieber pitched 8 innings in his last start and only gave up 2 runs and somehow didn't get the win. The Marlins last faced him on July 31.
