The Marlins will be looking to secure the series split tonight.

Chris Volstad takes the hill for the Marlins. This will be Volstad's first start since the brawl. One thing that kinda gets lost in that start is that, Volstad didn't pitch all that well in the game. The Marlins really need him to go semi-deep in tonight's game. The bullpen needs the rest. If he can keep the ball down and find the zone, he should be fine.

Joe Blanton is on the mound for the Phillies. Blanton is coming off his shortest outing of the season, going only 4.1 innings against the Rockies in his last start. For the most part, Blanton has pitched well this season and like most pitchers he does best work at home. This will be Blanton's first start of the year against the Marlins.

Ichthyomancy has been reminded once again why holidays are more fun than work.

Best of Luck to You!
